Review:

"As with Montgomery Sole, my life is made bearable and glorious by a Mystery Club―a group of authors who tell the truth with wit and verve and style. Mariko Tamaki is in this club. . . . She’s the coolest member." ―Daniel Handler, author of Why We Broke Up

"Saving Montgomery Sole is a beautiful and eloquent book that perfectly captures the yearning for a mystery larger than ourselves." ―Holly Black, author of The Darkest Part of the Forest

“A deeply satisfying, smart, and necessary kind of book. Tamaki takes a classic high school narrative and infuses it with magic, queerness, and compelling complexity.” ―Kate Schatz, author of Rad American Women A-Z

"Mysticism and emotion live side by side for Montgomery Sole, a teen girl who is trying to unravel both the mysteries of the universe and of other people. I gobbled this book up in one sitting." ―Kate Scelsa, author ofFans of the Impossible Life

"Mariko Tamaki treasures and tears apart the quirky, confounding, and awkwardly beautiful parts of being a teenager, lending her unique talent and authentic voice to a cast of oddballs who also happen to be our neighbors, friends, and family." ―Corey Silverberg, author of Sex Is a Funny Word

"Mariko Tamaki's writing is my comfort food! Try saving Montgomery Sole, end up saving yourself.” ―Raziel Reid, author of When Everything Feels Like the Movies

“A quietly assured story . . . Montgomery’s slow confrontation with reality creates a realistic, satisfying arc, and Tamaki’s economical storytelling results in dimensional characters whose struggles feel viscerally real.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Tamaki balances the story’s lighter and more intense moments through Monty’s smart, forthright first-person narration . . . Meanwhile, the well-developed and likable supporting cast raises the novel’s emotional stakes . . . Offbeat and authentic―an uncommon treat.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“The characters are refreshingly diverse for YA literature, in both sexuality and race, and the conversations around religion, homophobia, and society are written as if they are a norm of Montgomery’s life―never straying into preachy or didactic territory . . . A strong addition to most school or public library YA collections.” ―School Library Journal
