Young Adult Fiction
“Not since Salinger’s Holden Caulfield have I encountered a teen protagonist as engrossing as Sheree Fitch’s Jake Upshore. Masterfully crafted and populated with utterly convincing characters, Pluto’s Ghost is destined to be a classic.”
"Rough and beautiful, harsh and poetic, Pluto's Ghost is an absolute page-turner."
"Sheree Fitch's best book, Pluto's Ghost hits like a brick through a window. Jake Upshore is a wonderful narrator -- a lovesick bad-ass on a desperate quest. Note perfect."
"Here's an absolutely true voice in teen fiction that is so worth listening to...Pluto's Ghost is one heck of a rollercoaster ride - the kind that you can't wait to get right back on as soon as you touch ground again, even though it's left your hair standing on end.”
"There's no doubt that the young adult novel is Fitch's true metier. Her prose, always refreshingly energetic, is so informed by poetic precision and intensity that it can't help but surprise...Fitch's picareque plot and vivid language - all part of her hero's lively, agitated personalitly - deliver a tale engaging from beginning to end."
"The writing in Pluto's Ghost is moving and rhythmical...The book will interest a wide range of readers. Spread the word: Pluto's Ghost deserves to be listened to."
"...a narrator with poetic flair...[Jake Upshore] is relatable and brutally honest, and his flaws will only endear him more to readers."
"Fitch's whimsical wordplay shine[s] in narrative form...[her] smartest work of teen fiction."
