Product description

Review

* "[A] brutally honest coming-of-age novel...Like puberty itself, this tale is alternately hilarious and painful, awkward and enlightening...an excellent, challenging read."

* "Smart, wickedly funny...In a magnificently frenetic first-person narration that includes clever short comics, charts and diagrams...Smith deftly builds characters--readers will suddenly realize they've effortlessly fallen in love with them--and he laces meaning and poignantly real dialogue into uproariously funny scatological and hormonally charged humor, somehow creating a balance between the two that seems to intensify both extremes. Bawdily comic but ultimately devastating, this is unforgettable."

* "This deceptively lightweight novel packs an unexpectedly ferocious punch."

"Amusing and touching in a "Looking for Alaska," meets Rabelais meets "Friday Night Lights" kind of way."

""Winger "broke my heart, like any great book should. Andrew Smith is a brave and talented storyteller who blows me away every time. Readers will love Ryan Dean West. This book is powerful, sweet and heart-wrenching."--A. S. King, Printz Honor-winning author of Please Excuse Vera Dietz

""Winger" is one of the most honest and beautifully raw novels I've read in a long time. Ryan Dean is a true original."--Matt de la Pena, author of Mexican WhiteBoy and We Were Here

I am seriously moved beyond words after finishing this beautiful, hilarious, and heart-exploding book. Reading Winger" is like running down a steep hill--you should probably slow down, but it feels too good to stop. Andrew Smith has written a wildly original, hilarious, and heartbreaking ode to teenage confusion and frustration. You'll devour it and then go back for more."--John Corey Whaley, author of the Printz and Morris winning Where Things Come Back"
