Raunchy, riotous, and real, this book is a total breath of fresh air. Hilarious and original, Jude is my new bae. A triumph
Everyone is going to have an opinion on [this] ... An uncompromising and often uncomfortable read, but also very compulsive and funny
Brave and caustic . . . After winning Canada's Governor General's Award for children's literature, Reid's novel was the subject of a petition protesting its 'vulgar' content. Just another example of the ugly prejudice it so affectingly indicts
An important novel, about what can happen when you inspire hatred because you don't fit into any supposed 'normal' category . . . a raw and original book
A young adult novel with bite
Brave, powerful, and can hopefully go some way toward helping young readers understand gender and sexuality
Brilliant ... It's sharp, uncannily accurate and dotted with touching moments that utterly wring you out ... Unnerving yes, but it also reveals just how talented Reid is at capturing so fully the pain of growing up and discovering who you are ... It'll be hard to forget in a hurry.
