About Oh Terrible Youth:

"... a testament to Aptowicz's spunk and versatility as a poet -- rarely does one move so fluidly and so well between formal and free verse, comedy and drama, written and performance contexts."
—Susan B. A. Somers-Willet

"She speaks the secret the language of nerds. It's a misfit's chronicle of heartache, hand-me-downs, and botched Halloween costumes. This book is just like its author-- brilliant, funny, honest, and Airwolf."
—Ernest Cline
