"Extraordinary Adventures is a terrifically funny novel, populated by terrifically funny, truly human characters. And yet, Daniel Wallace’s humor never feels cruel―even the most damaged characters still seem to have the possibility for love, for change, and for redemptions, big and small." ―Gabrielle Zevin, author of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
