PRAISE FOR JEWBILLY:
"An idiosyncratic story of personal growth and friendship, JEWBILLY is refreshingly offbeat, with unexpected profundity. Historical novels of adolescence are common, but this one has substance others often lack." - KIRKUS REVIEWS
"The humor runs through this book like a river. Thought-provoking, enlightening and sassy, it deserves a spot in any young adult collection; particularly in Jewish libraries." - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"An unapologetic and loud, historical YA, it's jam-packed with voicey humor and filled with twists and turns. It’ll be a refreshing read for kids looking for stories of honest 12 & 13 year olds - instead of the watered-down versions in their approved curriculum." - Independent Book Review
"A complex, heartwarming story of hard-won camaraderie and love. Rosenberg's novel is a read-the-last-page-and-start-again-right-away kind of book." - RECOMMENDED by the US Review of Books
"Truly an amazingly unique, and heartwarming coming-of-age story. The best book I've read in a long time. Seriously!" - Cara Lockwood, USA Today bestselling author and editor
"Hilarious, excellently-drawn characters. Rick Rosenberg is a talented writer who's created one of the most enjoyable books I've read. I highly recommend it." - Readers' Favorite
