Description

"With total mastery, Giles creates in Logan County an exuberant vortex of weirdness, where the commonplace sits cheek by jowl with the utterly fantastic, and populates it with memorable characters who more than live up to their setting....[I]maginative, thrill-seeking readers, this is a series to look out for." --Kirkus, STARRED review

"Laced with humor, the fantastical time war plays out at a dizzying pace as Giles interjects affecting realism with themes of reconciliation, family, identity, and destiny." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"[A] zany, clever adventure filled with surreal humor.... Anchored by its genuine characters and buoyed by its true fun, this is an adventure with staying power." --Booklist, STARRED review

"Giles gives his middle school-aged African-American protagonists unique style and admirable substance....While the pair manages to fix time in this adventure, an underlying distress suggests readers may enjoy greater depth in upcoming visits to an already cleverly fantastical and fantastically clever universe." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The Last Last-Day-of-Summer reminds me that all children deserve to exist in magical spaces where their imaginations and familial bonds will them into heroism. Every single child should have the freedom to be one of The Legendary Alstons. And I, for one, am grateful to Giles, and this brilliant story, for that reminder. " --Jason Reynolds, author of Newbery Honoree Long Way Down

"The legendary heroes of this legendary book are already legendary when the story begins! From there things can only get legendary-er!" --Tom Angleberger, author of the Origami Yoda series

"Lamar Giles has written an instant classic--readers won't want their time with the Legendary Alston Boys of Logan County to end." --Gwenda Bond, author of the Lois Lane series
