For THE LAST BOY AT ST. EDITH’S

“This is a funny, emotional book that will quickly become a favorite to many a reader, regardless of age. Sweet, funny, exciting—a spectacular debut.”

Kirkus, Starred Review!

“Malone’s debut is a sweet, candid novel about fitting in, messing up, and making amends.”

Publishers Weekly

“Humor mixes with more serious issues in this clever debut.”

Booklist

“Jeremy, tired of sticking out as the only boy at an all-girls school, is suddenly desperate to find a balanced coed environment. Because he cannot easily transfer to another school, Jeremy devises a plan to pull off a series of pranks in the hope of his expulsion. He enlists the help of his rebellious friend, Claudia, and the unwitting assistance of his former best friend, Emily. The pranks are intended to be harmless, but soon his older sister is blamed for one, and a classmate has an asthma attack as the result of another. Jeremy is forced to rethink his methods and his desire to leave St. Edith’s. Meanwhile, Claudia proves her worth, and Jeremy comes to a better understanding of his relationship with Emily. His thoughtful choice is a worthwhile lesson about friendships for any reader. This is an enjoyable, straightforward tale that will have readers sympathizing with Jeremy’s journey of struggling with individuality, to embracing it.”
