    Pinkwater is one of those writers who’s descriptions of cool and interesting places makes me wish I was able to step into the book and experience them myself. Like the chili parlor in Alan Mendelsohn, The Boy From Mars. I’ve always wanted to eat there.

    This book always struck me as the culmination of his earlier YA novels: the cigars, the rebellion, the ending leading into college. It’s like the best parts of all the books in Five Novels put together.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this.

    In the right hands it would make a good movie.

    If you like this one, you’ll LOVE Young Adult Novel. Look for the criminally out of print Young Adults, which carries the story through high school and into college.
