It’s been about two months since the release of THANKS A LOT, UNIVERSE, Chad Lucas’s highly acclaimed debut with Abrams. We’re thrilled to announce that this fabulous middle grade novel has received its second starred review, this one from School Library Journal!
THANKS A LOT, UNIVERSE tells the stories of two middle school boys working through crisis and developing friendship, featuring a diverse cast and a message of hope. Here’s a snippet of School Library Journal’s starred review: “Readers can learn a great deal from these characters. Painfully real and radiantly hopeful, this is a recommended first purchase.”
We think Kirkus’s verdict embodies THANKS A LOT, UNIVERSE previously received a starred review from Kirkus, which called it “Tenderhearted and bold.” It is also a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection!
