SO PUNK ROCK REVIEWS
Awesome. Brilliant. Hilarious. So Punk Rock is so good!
– Blake Nelson, author of Girl
David’s comic strip-style illustrations are true show stoppers: amusing, ironic, and helpful, whether expanding on Ari’s school schedule or defining Jewish, musical, or “otherwise esoteric terms” in the glossary.
– Booklist (starred review)
The pitch-perfect dialogue pairs seamlessly with David Ostow’s black-and-white panels, which are dispersed throughout the text and pull the narrative threads together. Heavy on the Jewish humor, but without the vulgarity of Adam Sandler,the Ostows successfully balance culture with teen experience.
This fun yet meaty novel will appeal to teens. Highly recommended.
– Jewish Book World Review
