Quotes & Awards

  • “A refreshing spin on a story about fitting in and overcoming obstacles features…The authors bring alive a humdrum, ordinary routine, making it crackle with emotion and humor. A novel treatment of a familiar situation delivered with fizz and aplomb.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Using two narrators is the perfect way to deliver this story… Vikas Adam is the voice of Ravi, a recent immigrant from India, and Josh Hurley is the voice of Joe, a boy with auditory processing disorder. Hurley creates a kind character in Joe, speaking softly in a measured voice, which makes it all the more heartbreaking when the listener discovers that Joe is the target of bullies. Fluent in Hindi, Adam provides a perfect accent for Ravi, the smart and confident boy who also becomes the butt of jokes because of his accent and Indian lifestyle…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “[An] engrossing and poignant tale…Anyone who has ever felt like an outsider will appreciate and draw strength from Ravi and Joe as they strive to find the courage to improve their lives.”
