“One part Shaun Tan, one part Chris Van Allsburg, one part 21st century ennui - this wordless story about isolation and connection in a technology-saturated world (notice the “alienation” title pun) is one of the most visually stunning books of the year.” -Travis Jonker, SLJ 100 Scope Notes
[STAR] “A clever, enigmatic glimpse at first-world alienation.” -Kirkus Reviews (starred),
