Review:

"Like its predecessor, this high-voltage, honest novel mixes humour, pain, fear and courage with deceptive ease" (Publishers Weekly)

"Brilliant comic writing tinged with the poignancy of reality" (The Bookseller)

"A sad, scary, blackly funny sequel . . . A triumph" (Kirkus)

"Gantos creates scenes of comic genius . . . Joey is an endearing character who should run and run" (TES)
