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
