The Reading Zone reviews BOY21:
-------"As my student said so eloquently when he handed back our classroom copy of Boy21,
this is a book about life. Smart, funny, raw, and touching, it’s a
book I can confidently recommend to all of my readers, from reluctant to
voracious. The characters are real and their lives are not perfect. I
found myself wanting to dive between the pages and rescue Finley, Russ,
and Erin. But at the same time, I knew that none of them would allow
themselves to be rescued. Boy21 is
a book I am looking forward to handing to a lot of my John Green fans,
because Quick’s book is smart and witty while still making the reader’s
heart break and put itself back together again. Highly, highly recommended!"
