Booklist - 04/01/2015 Ty’s best friend Joseph, now cancer-free, is out of the hospital and back in their classroom, where everyone clusters around him. Ty feels awkward talking with Joseph at first, but a shared adventure and a new perspective help to restore their bond while leaving room for others as well. The third book in the Life of Ty series offers a lively portrayal of school and family dynamics, narrated by a second-grader. From Ty’s decision to fake an injury to his mother’s admission that “grown-ups mess up,” Myracle’s characters struggle with their insecurities and flaws in ways that will engage early chapter-book readers. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
School Library Journal - 05/01/2015 Gr 2–4—Ty's best friend Joseph is coming back to school after spending months in the hospital being treated for leukemia. Ty is beside himself with excitement, ready to jump back into favorite activities with his pal. Unfortunately, Joseph is the center of attention in their second grade class and Ty finds himself frustrated and maybe a tiny bit jealous. As in the past entries, Ty's warm-hearted attitude and authenticity shine through. A generous typeface, sporadic illustrations, and short chapters make this series a fine choice for independent readers . - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
