Starred SLJ Review: Paulie Fink

School Library Journal gave The Next Great Paulie Fink a really wonderful review and I’m so, so grateful:

“Benjamin has crafted a smart, funny, and deeply felt coming of age story that middle schoolers will relate to and find themselves ruminating on. She incorporates allegories from the ancient Greeks to examine assumptions and to question one’s place in the community and in the world.”

VERDICT A witty, tender, and utterly engaging modern school story that draws on the wisdom of the ages. “
