Praise

“Harrell’s genius is making all of it feel authentic for a seventh grader, a teenager who, like countless others, just wants to be normal . . . Bodies change, people change, life continues. It’s a lesson a lot of us have been learning, and relearning, in recent days.” —New York Times Book Review

★ ”Filled with the same sardonic humor and celebration of atypical friendships as his Life of Zarf series, Harrell draws from personal experience to track the wild emotional roller coaster a seventh-grader rides after being diagnosed with a rare tear duct cancer.” —Booklist, starred review 

★ “This page-turner is not to be missed.” —School Library Connection, starred review

★ “Amusing black-and-white comics trace his unsavory experiences, capture the ironies of his predicament, and underline his creativity and sense of humor . . . This lively novel showcases the author’s understanding of middle school angst amid the protagonist’s experience with a serious illness.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The author balances this anger element well against the typical middle-grade tropes . . . While some of these elements will feel familiar, the novel’s emotional climax remains effectively earned . . . Not your typical kid-with-cancer book.”  —Kirkus

“The story’s beauty lies in how Ross’s life unfolds and opens . . . This title is delightfully good and different. Highly recommended.” —School Library Journal
