“Vive la Resistance!”

like We Care Tom Matthews

“Hilarious debut novel . . . examines pop cul- ture with a satirical, irreverent eye.” Book-


“The fast-paced story line, Matthews’s righ- teous indignation, and talented writing will make this novel a favorite for high school-

ers, who are likely to be troubled and up- lifted simultaneously.” —VOYA

“Dark humor and sharp language remi- niscent of Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club, alongside informed satire, bring a funny and often real vision to the pages. But it is the sense of empowerment that readers feel in the actions of Todd Noland and Joel Kasten that makes this book thrilling and worthwhile.” school liBRaRy JouRnal

“The brilliance of Like We Care is that it’s impossible to tell whether it’s outrageous satire or a completely faithful depiction of reality. Either way, it’s great fun.” max BaRRy, BEstsEllinG authoR oF JenniFer governmenT and Syrup

“A fearless, angry, brutally funny poke in the eye of the American music machine and pop culture industry. Tom Matthews’s memorable, highly readable first novel is that rare literary artifact—a satire with teeth.” tom PERRotta, authoR oF liTTle Children and eleCTion
