“One of the bravest novels I’ve read in a very long time. Matt Greene lets the reader become detective, and clue by clue we uncover not only the truth of Alex’s world, but the deepest truths of what it means to love and lose.”—Carol Rifka Brunt, author of Tell the Wolves I’m Home
This debut novel, Ostrich, from newcomer Matt Greene is full of tremendous charm and brilliance in the spirit of R.J. Palacio’s Wonder and Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
This is Alex’s story. His story about feeling ostrichized. (Alex believes ostrichisized is a better work for excluded because ostriches can’t fly so they often feel left out.) It is also about empathy, his parents, his pet hamster, brain surgery, as well as love, trust, and fate. It is also about courage.

“Irresistible! Ostrich is loaded with wit, charm, and wisdom. Alex is one of the sweetest and most inspiring narrators I’ve ever encountered. I dare you not to laugh, cry, and fall utterly in love.”—Maria Semple, New York Times bestselling author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette?
