"This story is a winner for new readers and aspiring gumshoes alike. Readers will look forward to seeing more of this entertaining detective duo in the future. It’s no mystery — all clues point to fun!" —STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews
"Atkinson’s unfussy panels abound with pop culture references for full comedic and cinematic effect, adeptly balancing humor with heart." —Publishers Weekly
"This gem of an early grade graphic novel balances blatant goofiness with droll humor. . . . Aspiring detectives may not find a professional mentor in the two pals, but they’ll find plenty of good fun." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Stunning, heartbreakingly real and at once a strong, unflinching story of poverty and socioeconomic inequities that haunt us in our imperfect country. Violence against children, homelessness and food insecurity will weigh on your heart as Rex tells his story. His story is more powerful because he is not alone, as this is an all-too-common theme in some households. A truly superb memoir and one that will never be forgotten. - Reviewed by Maureen
