Reviews

A fresh and charmingly narrated look at teens and gender.
--Kirkus Reviews

Everyone should read this, regardless of age. The book discusses important topics about growing into your skin (literally and physically), and gender identity...Go get a copy of this right now.
--Huffington Post Part of School Library Journal's What's Hot in YA Roundup "Changing bodies, developing personalities, forays into adult activities--where was this book circa the early 2000s when I needed it? But something tells me my adult self will learn a thing or to from it as well."
--Barnes & Noble Blog/Indie Books Roundup Recommended by June Thomas on Slate Radio's Double X Gabfest "The Coopers have a strong ear for teenager-isms, and the exploration of Drew's ups and downs is eminently believable . . . the slow build of a strong character--with the lure of something totally new coming up next--will leave readers ready for the next Change in this line-up."
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A perfect read for a young adult: warm and humorous without being superficial or saccharine, engaging real issues of teenage life with ease and natural grace, and offering an element of fantasy accurately reflecting the wonder and terror of growing up."
--Chapter 16/The Knoxville News Sentinel "An excellent look at gender and identity and the teenage experience."
--Tor.com "A must read for every teen."
--I'd So Rather Be Reading "Changers Book One really stole my heart."
--Bookcharmed Love it. Love it, love it, love it. Seriously. Read this.
--The Best Books Ever This is a transcendent book and I absolutely recommend it.
--Heaven to Earth Reviews This is one of the most creative concepts I have heard about, so I knew I would have to read it right away! I was worried that the execution wouldn't be as good as the concept, but it was amazing...I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
--Pub Writes 4 huge stars. Maybe even 4.5. I really enjoyed this book, and can't wait to read the rest of the series!
--The Overstuffed Bookcase I couldn't put it down. I even read it in the dark. Probably not the best idea since my vision is already bad. But hey! good books deserve sacrifices.
--Paper Boat Sails Very cool!
--Twinja Book Reviews Changers Book One really stole my heart.
--Bookcharmed This first book in the Changers series explores Ethan/Drew's first steps along the perilous journey to become his/her true self and discover how he's meant to change the world.
--Books YA Love I was thrilled to discover a book that deals with issues of identity and belonging with so much heart and, more importantly, humor . . . Changers Book One: Drew changed the way I think.
--Clay Aiken, singer/UNICEF ambassador One of the Top 10 2014 Books I am Excited to Read, Plays Well With Books (blog) Change. It's the one universal thing that everyone goes through, especially in high school. Changers Book One: Drew ratchets that up a notch and kicks open the door, with both humor and panache. Big questions and equally big highs (laughs) and lows (cries). And you thought high school was awkward before!
--Kimberly Pauley, author of Sucks to Be Me More praise for T Cooper and Allison Glock-Cooper: Allison Glock is a writer of uncommon generosity.
--New York Times Book Review Cooper's storytelling skills are phenomenal.
--Time Out New York Glock's writing is smart and swift. A wise and effortless storyteller.
--People T Cooper is a prodigious talent.
--Darin Strauss, author of Chang & Eng Allison Glock has the kind of writing talent that packs worlds into sentences.
--Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes T Cooper has an affinity for creative liberties, even in anything-goes 21st-century fiction, liberties of a stunning sort . . .
--Seattle Post-Intelligencer Allison Glock makes it looks easy.
--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
