* "The author...avoids heavy symbolism and message by grounding her story in realistic, grimly vivid, urban details, and she creates a memorable character in Iggy...Teens will connect with Iggy''s powerful sense that although he notices everything, he is not truly seen and accepted himself." --Booklist (September 15, 2006 - starred review)
* "Iggy Corso is unforgettable." --School Library Journal (September 2006) (starred review)
"In a carefully crafted novel that makes metaphors out of everything from dead-end streets to a doorman''s casual query...K.L. Going tracks her hero on his quest to ''do good'' in both senses of the phrase... Going folds it all into her larger story of urban redemption without sentimentalizing any of it--or goodness either--and Iggy''s wry humor keeps the lurking didacticism in check." --Washington Post Book World (October 1, 2006)
