Review quote

Praise for Heretics Anonymous: "With a page-ripping plot and realistic character development, Henry's funny, heartwarming tale of unlikely rebels soars: an auspicious debut."
- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Most impressive here is Henry's multifaceted take on religion. Come for the arch first-person narrative and puppy love, stay for the examination into belief." -- ALA Booklist (starred review) "In addition to being a frequently hilarious comedy with its share of complicated romance, the story presents a thought-provoking look at faith, questioning but ultimately respectful of Catholicism and other beliefs." -- Horn Book Magazine "The story adeptly asks readers to question what they believe and why, without being preachy, judgmental, or dismissive. Humor interlaced with more serious ideas make for an interesting and enjoyable read. Highly recommended, especially for teens who are passionate about a cause." -- School Library Journal "In this entertaining coming-of-age story, five free-thinking students launch a clandestine campaign against their school's rigid policies and practices, with unanticipated consequences. Snappy dialogue sparkles throughout this skillfully crafted debut." -- Publishers Weekly "Genuine and heartfelt doctrinal questions arise in between the pranks and the conversations Michael has with his new friends, allowing both believing and nonbelieving readers to find their way into this exploration of the way feelings about family and faith intersect. A balanced perspective of possibilities of faith and skepticism." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
