"With a deft sense of humor and a keen ear for funny and realistic teen dialogue, Vizzini explores one teen everyman's quest to become a hero, one roll of the six-sided die at a time .... Great geeky fun." -- Kirkus Reviews"[A] lighthearted yet bitingly funny fantasy ... Through the protagonist's incisive observations, rampant insecurities, and unapologetic embrace of nerd-culture, Vizzini depicts the teen male experience with authenticity and honesty." -- The Horn Book"Perry is lovably awkward, and his goofy eagerness is offset by his bitingly funny observations.... Vizzini's true strength is in authentically depicting the skills needed to survive growing up." -- ALA Booklist"THE OTHER NORMALS is wildly imaginative, incredibly funny, and weirdly wise. I don't know where Vizzini gets this stuff --it's like he's tapped into the collective unconscious of alienated adolescents everywhere." -- Lev Grossman, New York Times bestselling author of THE MAGICIAN and THE MAGICIAN KING"Vizzini has created a likable geek in Perry and an interesting alternate world that could easily be the setting for more adventures. This book will be enjoyed by readers open to something that straddles the line between fantasy and science fiction." -- School Library Journal"A fast-paced coming-of-age story with a fascinating premise which, to the great credit of the author, is seamless and strangely believable." -- R.A. Salvatore, New York Times Bestselling author of CHARON'S CLAW and The Dark Elf TrilogyPraise for IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY: "This book offers hope in a package that readers will find enticing, and that's the gift it offers." -- Booklist (starred review)Praise for IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY: "A well-paced narrative...filled with humor and pathos." -- School Library JournalPraise for IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY: "This is an important book." -- New York Times Book Review
