Praise

“A sweet but unsentimental account of a truly fascinating nuclear childhood. Henigson had me at ‘Gorbachev.’” —Gary ShteyngartNew York Times bestselling author of Little Failure and Lake Success

An inspiring story of a teen fighting to save his life while also trying to save the world. Touching, vivid, full of humor and heartWarhead shows what is possible when we refuse to accept a diagnosis of despair.” —David Ebershoff, bestselling author of The Danish Girl and The 19th Wife
 
“Jeff Henigson’s incredible true story is both global and personalWarhead is about the battle all teenagers face as they struggle to carve a place for themselves in a world they did not create—but one that desperately needs them.” —Maya Van Wagenen, author of Popular

Readers will root for him…even as Jeff navigates hormonal impulses, a thrilling trip to Moscow, and the looming threat of cancer, we are anchored by the deep affection for his mother and desperate yearning for fatherly love. It’s a tale well-told—always gripping, often heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting. A useful story about navigating matters of the heart in times of personal—and global—crisis.” —Booklist
