*Kirkus Best Book of 2019*
*A Junior Library Guild Selection*

"Thomson's excellent middle-grade debut plumbs the absurdity and desperation inherent in a painful situation. Throughout the ordeal, Oliver battles and suppresses his grief and pain in a way that younger readers can recognize and perhaps understand amid the humor; more than anything, it's this implicit focus that makes this novel a great one. An uplifting gem." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"An engaging and entertaining story that sensitively explores the challenge of seeing flaws in oneself and those one admires." --Publishers Weekly

"[This book] will strike sympathetic chords in middle-grade readers." --Booklist

"A solid ground floor introduction to kids-will-fix-this adventures, with the lucha libre backdrop adding interest." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
