They also reviewed Click (not so favorably), and Barry Lyga's Boy Toy. That's a huge thrill for me, because actually EMAILED back and forth with Barry once. Yeah, him and me, we're like this. [Full disclosure: I am holding up two crossed fingers to show how close we are.] Reviews can't get much better than this: "The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl, caught reviewers' attention for its lightning-fast story line and contemporary, intelligent dialogue. These qualities persist in Boy Toy, though the subject matter is much more serious: Readers meet Josh, a high school senior whose life turns chaotic when the teacher who molested him is released from jail. ... Lyga doesn't condescend; he writes about sex and relationships with simplicity and honesty."
