Critic Reviews

"It's easy to fall off the face of the Earth, as the affable 15-year-old Ry discovers when he misses his camp-bound train somewhere in Montana. It wouldn't be so traumatic if his parents weren't adrift in the Caribbean, his grandpa in Wisconsin hadn't plunged into a sinkhole and all potentially helpful cell phones weren't either dead, out of range or stolen by a green-hued jungle monkey. Ry's efforts to get somewhere from the middle of nowhere form the core of this poetic, ebullient odyssey." (Kirkus Reviews)

Terrific story, great performance

My son and I loved it - laughing out loud together. The writing has so much enjoyment of the language in it. Lovely to hear. The performance is excellent - great voice, very believable. Kudos and Thanks!
