Arrendale narrates most of this book in a poignant earnestness that verges on the philosophical and showcases Moon's gift for characterization." - Publisher's Weekly. "Moon is effective at putting the reader inside Lou's mind, and it is both fascinating and painful to see the behavior and qualities of so-called normals through his eyes." - Meredith Parets, American Library Association.
