Selection - 2017 Rainbow Book List, Young Adult Fiction
PRAISE FOR Saving Montgomery Sole:
"Montgomery's slow confrontation with reality creates a realistic, satisfying arc, and Tamaki's economical storytelling results in dimensional characters whose struggles feel viscerally real." --Publishers Weekly
"While the themes are mature, the writing and characters are accessible for younger middle school readers; this would make a strong addition to most school or public library YA collections." --School Library Journal
"Mariko Tamaki gives good misfit. In a YA field crowded with stock outcasts, Tamaki’s weirdos stand out for never being merely the sum of a few obvious quirks or emotions . . . Monty and her friends could’ve hung around for another hundred pages, and I wouldn’t have minded a bit." --Quill & Quire
"It reads like a sitcom directed by Alexander Payne; while it’s dark and hilarious, it’s also true-to-life, honest and some genuine heart-warming 'aww' moments sneak in along the way." --Globe and Mail
