Description

"Stork introduces ethical dilemmas, the possibility of love, and other "real world" conflicts, all the while preserving the integrity of his characterizations and intensifying the novel's psychological and emotional stakes. Not to be missed." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review



"...Stork delivers a powerful tale populated by appealing (and decidedly unappealing) characters and rich in emotional nuance." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review



"Writing in a first-person narrative, Stork does an amazing job of entering Marcelo's consciousness and presenting him as a dynamic, sympathetic, and wholly believable character." -- School Library Journal, starred review



"It is the rare novel that reaffirms a belief in goodness; rarer still is one that does so this emphatically." -- Horn Book, starred review



"Shot with spirtualism, laced with love, and fraught with conundrums, this book, like Marcelo himself, surprises." -- Booklist, starred review



"[I]n the skillful hands of Francisco X. Stork, 17-year-old Marcelo Sandoval is the bravest, most original hero I've met in years...[A] brisk, brilliant, unsentimental novel..." -- New York Times



"Part coming-of-age story, part mystery and wholly compelling..." -- Washington Post



"While several recent books have used the conceit of an autistic protagonist, this thoughtful novel full of complicated characters is unique." -- Chicago Sun-Times



"Stork has written a beautiful study of the loss of innocence, as the questions Marcelo confronts are ones everyone has to grapple with in some form or other..." -- Los Angeles Times
