"An impressive debut novel that entertains while encouraging the questioning of all assumptions." — Kirkus Reviews

"This story of tragedy and relationships reads quickly, and Nick is a sympathetic narrator. . . . The author has created a small but well-crafted cast of characters [with] real-life issues that will resonate with young adults.  A good selection for most YA collections." — School Library Journal

“Irreverent, poignant, and smart, Jacked Up turns Jesus camp on its head! A clever debut by a talented new author.”  ―Kimberly Derting, award-winning author of the Body Finder series and the Pledge trilogy 

“With an unforgettable setting and a vibrant cast of characters, Erica Sage has delivered a poignant story of one boy’s search for forgiveness in the face of loss. Hilarious and insightful, Jacked Up explores the complexities of both faith and grief with remarkable honesty, nuance, and grace. A captivating debut.” ―Katie Henry, author of Heretics Anonymous 

“You can’t help but think of Jack Kerouac’s famous novel during this humorous and heartbreaking road trip of a book. Erica Sage’s deft hand on the wheel makes the journey memorable.” ―Mark Teppo, author of the Codex of Souls duology 

“Spiritual without being didactic, laugh-out-loud funny without being slapstick, and heartwarming without being melodramatic, Jacked Up takes us on a pilgrimage―both literal and allegorical―as Nick searches for healing and redemption.” ―Patrick Swenson, author of The Ultra Thin Man
