“Let me just say thank you again -- so much -- for the opportunity to take part in Booktopia this year. I can't say enough good things about it, and about the engaged, enthusiastic, welcoming, and supportive group of people I met there; I imagine you've heard the same thing from the other authors. I've always been aware that there's an engaged community of readers out there that -- in cooperation with independent bookstores, of course -- keeps an organic literary culture alive and thriving, but I never expected to MEET so much of that community together in one place."

Published: Adaptive Books - January 17th, 2017

This is exactly what it looks like;your favorite YA novel gone rogue. Featuring: walking stereotypes, unrelated historical information, completely improbable plot lines, the scenarios your teen aged brain made up about what could have happened on your school trip, drag queens, and a character that is vaguely, definitely Barrack Obama. Terrible and amazing. It won't be winning a prize for literature anytime soon but it was a fun and ridiculous quick beach read. You won't(...?) regret reading this. ~ Reviewed by Molly Halpin

Meet Ben. Ben is a pretty happy guy. Then he goes on a hike.
