"Wheatle's characteristic lively language, impassioned Star Wars references and colourful invented insults make for a brief but riotously relatable slapstick romp, ideal for reluctant readers" -- Guardian
"A hilarious, charming story ... Peppered with Star Wars references and laugh out loud, cringeworthy moments that every awkward teen will relate to" -- Scottish Book Trust
"As thought provoking as it is hilarious" -- Books for Keeps
"A sharp-beat of a voice that is as fresh and as hip as is it awash with pop-cultural charm ... not only riffs with a cultural and lexical discourse of today's youth but it also speaks for an audience who will have long been crying out for more voices like theirs for a very long time" -- Mat Tobin
