Product description

Review

"Irresistible! Ostrich is loaded with wit, charm, and wisdom. Alex is one of the sweetest and most inspiring narrators I've ever encountered. I dare you not to laugh, cry, and fall utterly in love."--Maria Semple, New York Times bestselling author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

"A coming-of-age story of some brilliance . . . I laughed heartily, sobbed unexpectedly, and significantly improved my grammar."--Nathan Filer, author of the Costa Book Award winner The Shock of the Fall

"One of the bravest novels I've read in a very long time. Matt Greene lets the reader become detective, and clue by clue we uncover not only the truth of Alex's world, but the deepest truths of what it means to love and lose."--Carol Rifka Brunt, author of Tell the Wolves I'm Home

"Ostrich has given me the most enjoyable reading experience I've had all year and has one of the funniest and most engaging young narrators I've had the pleasure of reading. Matt Greene is seriously funny and in Ostrich proves comedy can be the finest of arts."--Matt Haig, author of The Humans
