"The cartoon illustrations are simple, bold, and accessible. Teens who clue in to the comic's self-aware goofiness will enjoy this title."--School Library Journal"With chapters that are short, deliberately silly, and often hilarious...this book is a good grab for teens looking for a quick laugh."--Booklist "Teen Boat takes a wacky concept and places it in the realm of high school life."--VOYA, 3Q 2P M J
