"I let go my reservations about the art and just went with the flow of the story and had a hell of a good time. North has fun mixing classic alien invasion paranoia with today's concerns about undocumented immigrants. (Come to think of it, concerns..." Read more of this review »

Elizabeth E. Wein
“Jamie let go of me. "Shut your mucky gob, man." He stepped close to our fearless leader in the dark, took hold of his jacket by the collar, and in a dead quiet voice that had gone dangerously Scots, threatened heatedly, "Talk like that again wi' these brave lassies listenin' an' Ah'll tear the filthy English tongue frae yer heid, so Ah will.

Gabrielle Zevin
“Do you like Moby Dick?" he asks.

"I hate it," she says. "And I don't say that about many things. Teachers assign it, and parents are happy because their kids are reading something of 'quality.' But it's forcing kids to read books like that that make them think they hate reading.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

“Isn't it mysterious to begin a new journal like this? I can run my fingers through the fresh clean pages but I cannot guess what the writing on them will be.”
Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy in Spite of Herself
