"A funny, engaging middle grade adventure with an important lesson at its core."
A review by: Kirkus Reviews
Author Karton has an ear finely tuned to the rhythms and sweet absurdities of childhood patter, and his tale has enough fabulous twists and turns to keep even the most grown-up young adults intrigued….Adults reading to children will also delight in the wholesomely irreverent tone and moments of linguistic fancy. A refreshingly imaginative, emotionally satisfying quest for all ages.
"This book is a MUST read!!! It appeals to all age groups."

I'm just lovin' this book! Grammy is so witty and funny! It is engaging and great for birthday gifts. I'm 50+ and can't put the book down. I purchased four as gifts for my granddaughter and other children that I feel would enjoy reading it. Brody and Jake are amazing!!!
"Check out this AMAZING book!"
A review by: swimmingkid
This book was AMAZING!! It had every element a book needs, exciting plot, relatable characters, jokes, and the urge to want more! Gary Karton is a great first time author who knows how to connect with kids. And for not reading at all for a while, it took me only a day to read, and I could NOT put it down. I even fought with my sister over who's turn it was to read it ---YES, IT'S THAT GOOD! I hands down would recommend The Last Akaway to everyone!
