Praise for Stupid Fast:

“Whip-smart and painfully self-aware, Stupid Fast is a funny and agonizing glimpse into the teenage brain. Young readers looking for a genuinely memorable first—person narrator—in the vein of Sherman Alexie’s Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian or Pete Hautman’s Godless—should really catch up to Stupid Fast this summer.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

Praise for Nothing Special:

“Felton’'s voice is fresh and believable as a teen on the edge of manhood. Boys especially will discover kindred spirits in Felton and Andrew. Kudos to Herbach for this deep, moving, LOL funny, and completely original story.” —School Library Journal
