Review quote

Praise for "Truancy "and "Truancy Origins"Both nominated for YA Galley Teen Top Ten"This astounding and action-packed novel by a fifteen-year-old New York City student is sure to appeal to adolescents everywhere....It's sure to be a big hit, just the kind of subversive tale YA's recommend to each other." "--KLIATT," starred review on "Truancy""A big, raw, sprawling action film of a book, combining martial arts, street fighting, midnight raids, rooftop flights, and a high body count.... Action rules, and teen boys will swallow this book at a gulp, demanding more." "--VOYA "on "Truancy""The premise of teens combating an oppressive education system will entice readers.""--Booklist "on "Truancy""Fukui, who is a teen himself, focuses primarily on deftly depicted violence and explosive action sequences that will resonate most with reluctant male readers." "--Booklist "on "Truancy Origins""To anyone who suffered the angst of middle and high school and resented the demands of teachers and other adults, this story will strike a deep chord. Fukui's tale embodies the teenage fantasy of finally gaining freedom of choice, taking control for those in authority. Fast-paced action, gritty street fights, and satisfying vengeance will definitely carry high appeal for its audience." "--RT Book Reviews "on "Truancy Origins""Action-packed from beginning to end, the Truancy series could potentially be to teenage boys what Twilight is to teenage girls--an excellent trilogy to be shared with friends. There are enough twists and turns, blood and scheming to keep any teen glued to the couch and reading through the night. "Truancy Origins "is actually a prequel to Fukui's "Truancy," written when he was only fifteen years old." --Myshelf.com
