Product description

Review

* Beaudoin is the Fred Astaire of comic writing, translating each sentence into a manic dance routine of half-invented jargon (chewing the profunda-cud) on his way to blessedly non-cloying coming-of-age glory.--Booklist (starred review)

*The author does a brilliant job getting into the head of a troubled teen and does not shy away from racy topics.--School Library Journal (starred review)

[Beaudoin] plays language like Hendrix plays a guitar.--BCCB

Larger-than-life characters....Behind the music quest, sarcasm and pursuit of girls, however, lies a more complicated and often compelling story about family, grief and flawed coping mechanisms.--Kirkus

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Sean Beaudoin enjoys typing about himself in the third person, as if some underfed intern were writing his bio. He is the author of the YA novels Going Nowhere Faster, Fade To Blue, You Killed Wesley Payne, the Infects, and Wise Young Fool. Sean's stories and articles have appeared in numerous publications, including The Onion, the San Francisco Chronicle, Glimmer Train, Salon, and Spirit-the inflight magazine of Southwest Airlines. He has since been awarded free cocktail peanuts for life. Sean is also one of the founding editors of TheWeeklings.com. Welcome Thieves is his first story collection, and marks his transition to adult literature. A novel with Algonquin Press is forthcoming. @SeanBeaudoin SeanBeaudoin.com
