Staff Reviews


Ok for Now is one of the best novels written for children I’ve read this year. You can’t help but root for Doug, the main protagonist, as he navigates everything that life has thrown at him and even after the book ends I could only hope that he will really be ok.

Spring 2011 Kids' Next List


“Following The Wednesday Wars, Doug Swieteck returns as he and his family move to 'stupid' Marysville in upstate New York. Completely awed by his hero, Yankee baseball player Joe Pepitone, and trying valiantly to be nothing like his abusive, often drunken father, Doug has more than his share of obstacles. It's 1968: Doug's brother is in Vietnam, the Apollo 11 moonwalk is nearing, and Doug is hiding two big secrets. Phenomenal characters and impossible odds make this tale of an amazing young man funny, tender, and inspiring.”
