* Beaudoin is the Fred Astaire of comic writing, translating each
sentence into a manic dance routine of half-invented jargon
(chewing the profunda-cud) on his way to blessedly non-cloying
--Booklist (starred review)
[Beaudoin] plays language like Hendrix plays a guitar.--BCCB
Larger-than-life characters....Behind the music quest, sarcasm and pursuit of girls, however, lies a more complicated and often compelling story about family, grief and flawed coping mechanisms.--Kirkus
The author does a brilliant job getting into the head of a troubled teen and does not shy away from racy topics.--School Library Journal (starred review)
