Staff Reviews


A powerful coming of age story about friendship-the love and hate that can come with it, strength versus weakness, and what it means to grow up, even if everyone is living with regrets. Michael and Bunny are both loners who live on the outskirts of the cliques of high school. Their friendship is intense and their lives become inextricably connected even more so after one act of violence is met with another. So full of life and the longings of adolescence, Thorpe has created a strong, beautifully written novel that brims with authenticity, stops your breath, and knocks you off your feet.

“To say I admire The Knockout Queen feels inadequate, though I do admire a great deal of it: its voice, depth, structure — you name it. But it’s more honest just to say I love The Knockout Queen; I loved reading it, I felt involved in it, and, finally, I was so moved by its ending. This is an epic tale of friendship, one where the magnitude sneaks up on you quietly — but when it strikes home, it rings so brilliantly true.”
