"What an astonishing achievement... I can't remember when I last read something so original or sophisticated or emotionally engaging or so breathtakingly ambitious."--Kate Atkinson, author of Life After Life
"Probably the Next Divergent... The unique dialogue (there's no adults to teach them proper English, after all) and quick pacing make it an engrossing, thrilling read."--Self
"Sandra Newman's novel The Country of Ice Cream Starmakes the Hunger Games seem wimpy."--Wall Street Journal, Speakeasy
"The Country of Ice Cream Star is a bold, ballsy, ambitious novel that will get you thinking (and talking) differently about literature and the world."--Tweed's
"The Country of Ice Cream Star is in many ways a classic story, craftily refold and made contemporary...The Country of Ice Cream Star builds towards a powerful, horrifying, and beautifully-written climax, one that's epic in scope but also feels intensely personal."--New York Times Book Review
"[The Country of Ice Cream Star] weaves geography, race, gender, sexuality, and religion into a gripping narrative... the complexity of the story and the larger questions it raises about the inherently violent and self-serving nature of mankind linger long after the final page."--Bust Magazine
"The Country of Ice Cream Star is fresh, dark, and wholly unpredictable at every turn. Let the film rights' bidding war begin."--Daily Beast
"A little like Hanya Yanigihara's A Little Life, this is a big book that, while not always an easy read, immerses you in its world in a way that's not easily forgotten."--Slate, The Overlooked Books of 2015
"A richly detailed dystopian epic... This suspenseful, provocative tale is The Hunger Games meets Lord of the Flies and The Walking Dead, only much, much better."--Booklist (starred review)
Newman's novel is ambitious, taking on race, sex, class, religion, politics, and war all at once. What sets the work apart is its unapologetic narrator, whose fantastically unbridled, wholly teenage point of view renders each page a pleasure to read."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
