Editorial Reviews

Robert T. Jeschonek sees the world like no one else sees it, and makes incredibly witty, incisive stories out of that skewed worldview."-Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Starship series"Recalling outsider films like Donnie Darko or Gregg Araki's Teenage Apocalypse trilogy, this proudly surreal piece of metafiction could develop a cult following."- Publishers Weekly "This first novel has all the look of a cult fave: baffling to many, an anthem for a few, and unlike anything else out there."- Booklist, starred review "It is also, however, a brilliantly developed and impeccably presented story that will engage readers immediately and keep them intrigued through to the last twists."- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Libraries looking for a strong addition to their science-fiction collections will want to invest in this sophisticated novel."- School Library Journal "
