The first two aren’t just nicknames I had in high school: the first called Brass One of the 13 Books You Must Read This January, and the second included Brass in the “read” category of their 71 Things to See, Hear, and Read This January. Plus, Bustle, in addition to their earlier mention of Brass, also called it one of the 18 Best Fiction Books of January. Meanwhile, using actual human vocal cords,¬†Rebecca Joines Schinsky and Liberty Hardy of the fabulous Book Riot podcats All The Books! included Brass in their 2018 New Release Preview Show.

Thanks for the attention, internet. As a middle child, I appreciate any I can get.
