"Funny, charming and full of heart, this is a really special book. I defy you not to root for Felix Fredrik Knutsson!" -- Lisa Williamson
"Susin Nielsen is an amazing writer. No Fixed Address is my book of the year" -- Hilary McKay
"Felix's deeply engrossing and fully immersive first-person narrative of homelessness is both illuminating and heartbreaking" * Kirkus, starred review *
"Readers will be cheering for Felix as he learns to finally let others help him. A well-written work of realism that will be a mirror to some and a window for others." -- starred review * School Library Journal *
"Felix's story is hard to put down and, while it doesn't shy away from the grim reality of "accidental" homelessness, this gritty, contemporary issue is tackled with sensitivity and gentle humour." * BookTrust *
"Susin Nielsen is the finest voice currently writing YA. Not many writers can put comedy and heartbreak in the same book, never mind the same page, but Susin does it effortlessly." -- Phil Earle
