Reviews

"A resonant, uplifting story about not just getting through, but powering through, the tough times."--Kirkus Reviews * "King's themes of torture, physical and emotional imprisonment, and bullying connect in satisfying ways in this improbably witty and heartwarming story."--The Horn Book, starred review * "The unusual and occasionally comic juxtaposition of the POW experience with Lucky's victimization... [offers] compelling food for thought about the things we can control and the things we can't, and how that distinction ultimately determines the need for action."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review * "King's heartfelt tale easily blends realism and fantasy.... A haunting but at times funny tale about what it means to want to take one's life, but rising above it so that living becomes the better option."--School Library Journal, starred review * "A smart, funny, and passionate novel that embodies that idea that 'It Gets Better'--when you take action."--Publishers Weekly, starred review * "King remarkably channels fifteen-year-old Lucky, creating one of the most believable teen male characters in young adult fiction.... This unique coming-of-age story will hold tremendous appeal for reluctant male readers."--VOYA, starred review * "Blending magic and realism, this is a subtly written, profoundly honest novel about a kid falling through the cracks and pulling himself back up."--Booklist, starred review
