Editorial Reviews

KGBbarlit.com
"I found the narrator's "tetched" voice to be addictive. His detachment motivates me to turn the page to hear more."
Midwest Book Review
"A vibrant story of self- discovery and learning what it means to become a well-adjusted adult."
Mad Hatters' Review
"Rutkowski evokes skillfully the internal conflicts that accompany a thorny childhood and its volatile, often absurd aftermath."
