"Fans of the Harper Lee classic--and book nerds everywhere--should flock to this uplifting, unabashed tribute." --The Horn Book "The banter among the three whip-smart friends would make John Green proud. . . . You won't have to hide any copies of this to create demand." --BCCB "Acampora's well-written, resolutely cheerful offering celebrates books, reading, and life." --Booklist "Funny, poignant, and quirky." --School Library Journal "Fans of Janet Tashjian's The Gospel According to Larry series will enjoy this look at how the power of creativity and the internet can cause a cultural movement. . . . Acampora's novel is for lovers of literature, especially how the classics work in the current moment." --VOYA "Literary terrorists hit Connecticut, but things go awry for a trio of well-meaning book addicts. . . . The spot-on dialogue combines with the irresistible appeal of young teenagers enthusiastically pursuing bad ideas for a fast, page-flipping read." --Kirkus Reviews "This strong novel stands on its own as a testament to the power of reverse psychology, but will resonate with fans of the original Mockingbird and maybe inspire a few to check it out." --Publishers Weekly
