Neal Thompson

Advanced praise for Kickflip Boys:

"Thompson captures the ache, fizz, yearning and frustration of being the father of an adolescent boy—and of adolescence itself, observed and remembered." -Michael Chabon
“With the emotional authority of the best novels, Thompson’s prose sings. I laughed out loud and cried all the way through. The voice is brave, funny and fiercely honest. Ultimately this wonderful book is about love. Because those we care about most will always surprise us.” -Peter Heller
“A provocative and inspiring memoir that delves into the hopes and fears of parents as much as it delves into the hopes and fears of the children they are striving to raise." -Garth Stein
