From the Publisher:

Named to the New York Public Library List "Books for the Teen Age, 2000"

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Brady wants to believe several impossible things?that he can somehow find his mother who was killed in an accident; that his father won't marry the mean-spirited woman who wants to send Brady to military school; that he can protect his friend Gareth and Gareth's unusual mom from danger; and that the wonderful creature?part dragon, part griffin, part comic?book monster?that hatched in his secret hiding place really does exist. In his first-person narration, Brady describes the weeks following his 12th birthday. He seems more sophisticated in thought and word than most boys his age, perhaps because of his recent experiences, but his voice still rings true as that of an early adolescent. His descriptions bring the other characters, settings, and situations to life, successfully blending fantasy and realism in a compelling story. Impossible challenges that begin in fantasy are resolved in realistic, believable ways, leaving Brady stronger and wiser in the knowledge that there are always others to turn to, others who care, and that there is an inner strength within each one of us to carry on. Brady's ability to change some of the impossible things and accept the ones he cannot sends a comforting message to readers who have experienced similar problems, along with a captivating story.
