They say his clothes blend into the background, no matter where he stands. They say a lot of things about the Schwa, but one thing’s for sure: no one ever noticed him. Except me. My name is Antsy Bonano, and I was the one who realized the Schwa was “functionally invisible” and used him to make some big bucks.

Editorial Reviews

"Antsy tells his story in a bubbly Beastie Boys- meet-Bugs Bunny Brooklynese that keeps the pages flipping, and Shusterman's characters [are] reminiscent of those crafted by E. L. Konigsburg and Jerry Spinelli." -School Library Journal, starred review
