Astrid Krieger lives in a rocket ship prototype in the backyard of her parents' estate. Her recent expulsion from the elite Bristol Academy has won her a unique punishment- She'll have to attend public school for the very first time . . .
Praise for Firecracker-
'Thoroughly amusing . . . . Readers who enjoyed the pranks played in John Green's Looking for Alaska will see the similarity and notice the universal fire of youth anew. Read the book (though be warned- Astrid may be influential).'Voya
'Hilarious and witty.'
'Not your everyday poor-little-rich-girl story. Being called a firecracker is a derogatory term as far as Astrid is concerned, but for readers, it simply means entertaining.'Kirkus (starred Review)
'Iserson deftly manages to make his heroine sympathetic . . . The slightly absurd tinge to the story bursts into full flower in the elaborate climax, but underneath the pageantry is a genuinely moving development for Astrid, and readers will want to hang with her - if only to keep an eye on her.'BCCB (starred Review)
'Fast-paced and funny.'School Library Journal
'Filled with fantastically crafted characters and one-liners that will make you LOL.'Hellogiggles
'David Iserson does a spectacular job.'Newark Star-Ledger
