Description

"Without passing judgment, Averett addresses the issue of free choice versus protective care. . . Readers will have no trouble recognizing the impact of Cameron's hallucinations and his burning need for independence."
--Publishers Weekly

"Cameron's first-person narration allows access to an absorbing glimpse of schizophrenic behavior. . . . Thoughtful and eye-opening."
--Booklist

"This is a well-written, taut, and empathetic novel that provides readers with an unnerving vicarious experience."
--School Library Journal

"This novel is a nuanced treatment of a difficult topic, sustained by narrative drive."
--Horn Book

"Averett does a good job of developing Cameron's situations in a way that helps the reader understand the true depth of the struggle that Cameron is facing; he uses language that makes the internal conflict explode off the page. This is a raw, real, quick read that looks into darkness of mental illness."
--VOYA, 4Q 3P J S

"[Averett's] accessible writing makes Cameron and his struggle vivid to young readers, and they'll find this an eye-opening walk in somebody else's shoes."
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
