The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World is gritty, gutsy, and ferociously strange. Amy Reed offers us a surreal yet oddly familiar world teetering on the edge of destruction and offers hopeful and inventive ways to survive the pain and salvage our dreams. This story is powerful and unique, and I envied its wild and irreverent vision to pieces.
Billy [is] a delightful creation . . . there's a wickedly funny parody . . . Tinges of the supernatural add to the electric sense of place in a caustic and original novel.
