Booklist, The Horn Book Guide

Junior Library Guild

  • A convincing school story that also features an engaging central mystery with a surprising reveal.
  • Alton’s plan to be honest with his classmates and ask for forgiveness, before they see his maps that may upset them, is instructive and inspiring without being didactic.
  • Secondary characters are well drawn, including popular Quint, who has more depth than Alton initially expected, and the principal, who is entertained by Alton’s data on the number of times she says “um” during the morning announcements.
  • Dan Andreasen’s soft pencil sketches enhance the story by depicting dramatic moments, such as the lunch ladies looking skeptically at Alton during his confession.
