Reviews

Praise for Flip

"A multi-level tale, well told. The extremely short chapters and cinematic point-of-view shifts keep the pages flipping quickly. The author makes both main characters equally compelling."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] quick, fun, funny book . . . for just about anyone who can read."--San Diego Union-Tribune

"A funny and imaginative tale. This is an enjoyable read that will appeal to both boys and girls."--KLIATT

"The narrative jumps nimbly between the siblings and also includes their meek but funny friends Ellis and the school bully, who is headed for an inevitable showdown with Ryan. [A] pleasant choice for humorous science fiction fans."--School Library Journal
