Book by Gantos Jack

Críticas:

"An exhilarating summer marked by death, gore and fire sparks deep thoughts in a small-town lad not uncoincidentally named 'Jack Gantos.' The gore is all Jack's, which to his continuing embarrassment 'would spray out of my nose holes like dragon flames' whenever anything exciting or upsetting happens. And that would be on every other page, seemingly . . . Characteristically provocative gothic comedy, with sublime undertones." --"Kirkus Reviews", starred review

"Gantos, as always, deliver bushels of food for thought and plenty of outright guffaws..." --"Booklist"

Jackie Gantos." --"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review
