Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Booklist, June 1, 2011: <br> If the unnamed narrator of Paulsen's Lawn Boy (2007) is the plucky entrepreneur who skyrockets to riches, Kevin is the wannabe mogul who sees an angle a mile away but trips over his own sky's-the-limit aspirations. A glib, quick read to launch a thousand MBAs. <br><br><br> From the Hardcover edition.
