"Before you read these poems: go and check out what The New Yorker is pushing as poetry. Then open up Young Americans, seems obvious what Jordan Castro is doing is doing is revolutionary, he is expressing emotions through poetry that have never been done before. The style, the way the subject matter is portrayed, even the meter, are new." - Noah Cicero (author of The Human War, The Insurgent, and more)
"If you are a person who doesn't really know what they are doing and you would like to read about a person who doesn't really know what they are doing either, I recommend reading this poetry book. I enjoyed reading these poems. Or something." - Chris Killen (author of The Bird Room)
"I read these poems three times in one night, then put the duvet over my head and held my knees for a while. It's good when something makes sense. I really really liked these poems." - Ben Brooks (author of Grow Up)
