"Jomny Sun's incredible writing knocks you to the floor,
breathless, then scoops you up and gives you a kiss where it hurts
before it occurs to you to cry. Read this book only if you want to
feel more alive." -- Lin-Manuel Miranda
"Jomny Sun has created a frightened, hopeful view of Life As We Know It from the perspective of a weirdly relatable alien intelligence. Fantastic." -- Patton Oswalt
"This book is funny and sad, simple and complex, badly spelled and beautifully written. Jonmy Sun gets more out of a panel than most do out of a page, revealing obvious yet hidden truths as only someone one step out of step could." -- Joss Whedon
Impressively sincere, at times insightful, and humorous.... Sun's fans will welcome his first book with wild enthusiasm... -- Library Journal
