Peanut


“A smart, affecting graphic young adult novel…The teenagers’ dialogue is almost always witty, acerbic and perceptive, and also sweet when it needs to be. Sadie’s allergy may be fake, but the sentiments in Peanut are not…”
–Pamela Paul, The New York Times

“It’s not easy being both hip and life- affirming, but this team has the secret formula.”
Publishers Weekly, STARRED

“Librarians, teachers, and parents should definitely share this book with teens looking for realistic graphic novels about schools, friendship, peer pressure, or moral choices.”
–School Library Journal, STARRED

“Librarians, teachers, and parents should definitely share this book with teens looking for realistic graphic novels about schools, friendship, peer pressure, or moral choices.”
Miami Herald

“Most impressive is the lack of stereotypes or overwritten characters.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Underneath the many funny moments runs a poignant current as readers recognize—better than Sadie herself—the high costs of her dishonesty.”
–The Horn Book
