Reviews

"The novel has a fresh, funny voice that never diminishes the seriousness of schizophrenia. Leavitt delivers an imaginative exploration of mental illness, examining what's real and what's true in this magical world." --Booklist, starred review

Written as a letter to Watterson (to fulfill a make-up English assignment), the first-person narrative eschews quotation marks and dialogue tags, further blurring the lines between real life and what's in Calvin's head. . . . Memorable. --Horn Book, starred review Equal parts coming-of-age tale, survival adventure, and love story, this outstanding novel also sensitively deals with an uncommon but very real teen issue, making it far more than the sum of its parts. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review Funny, intellectual, and entertaining, it's a sensitive yet irreverent adventure about a serious subject. --Publishers Weekly Sweet, romantic, and funny. --School Library Journal
