Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Reminiscent of an all-male version of The Breakfast Club…A quick read for fans of relationship fiction.” School Library Journal
“The novel’s contained setting and rapid-fire dialogue gives the story a theatrical quality…Provide[s] opportunities for thought and conversations about self-honesty, stereotypes, and making friends in unexpected situations.” Publishers Weekly
“Readers will both like and recognize the diverse group of characters, such as the brainiac or the hostile, seemingly dumb one…Likable characters and a nice dose of humor.” Kirkus Reviews
“The story is told from the point of view of Jordan, and Heyborne excels at conveying the tension between Jordan’s self-doubt and his attempts to hide his feelings behind sarcasm…The novella is a great listen, and middle-graders will like this relatable story about dispelling stereotypes, being true to yourself, and finding friends where you least expect [to]." Booklist (audio review)
“Kirby Heyborne applies his trademark emotional range to flush out the stereotypes: class clown, brainiac, overachiever, bully, plugged-in air rocker, and insecure newbie…Heyborne brings youthful energy to each character and plays them off each other so well you’d swear you were watching the story on stage. Heyborne taps into that effect when the story is retold in screenplay format, complete with stage directions. Devon’s air rock concert, Jordan’s comedic narrative, Regan’s near constant list of his own achievements, and Avery’s shyness are sure to please.” AudioFile
