Praise For…


Praise for Genius: The Game:

"Genius is a breakthrough novel for young adults and others who love this mind-expanding genre. Genius is exciting, provocative, fresh, innovative, and smart, smart, smart. Please don't wait until Genius is a cult classic to read it." — James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Maximum Ride novels

"Strong characters who show their bravery throughout, friendships that do not falter, and ethics that do not fail, even when characters are faced with the impossible, are a refreshing change to most teenage novels. Readers will be caught up in the brilliance of the three characters and be surprised at the many twists and turns that they must confront. A gripping must-have." —School Library Journal, starred review

"Gout's characters are believable and immensely likable and their friendship serves as a delightful and realistic anchor amid the fast-moving chaos. Science and technology may take center stage in Gout's fictional Game, but it's the less flashy craft of writing that sells the story." —The New York Times Book Review

"A fast-moving story that presents its protagonists with intriguing moral choices" —Publishers Weekly
