Praise

“Gephart maps the hormonal, emotionally torturous terrain of pubescent boyhood with realistic dialogue, well-developed secondary characters and age-appropriate humor and insight, placing this title in the same august league as Jordan Sonnenblick’s Girls, Drums and Dangerous Pie.”-Kirkus, starred.  

With short chapters and broad humor, this one is for “Wimpy Kid” aficionados.“–School Library Journal, starred.  

“A deft balance of clever humor and poignant drama makes for an engaging and thoroughly enjoyable coming-of-age story, one to which many young readers, particularly boys, will find themselves relating . . . excellent cast of supporting characters . . . there are enough laughs, tears and additional contributions from a camera-loving hamster here to make this one appeal to Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans.”–The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Gephart crafts for her likable protagonist an engaging, feel-good transition into adolescence that’s well stocked with tears and laughter.”–Booklist

“This funny, tender novel . . . is relatable and compulsively readable.”–Publisher’s Weekly
