Overview

Sammy Greenberg would rather talk back to The Boyz–a gang of bullies at his school–and get his head stuck in the toilet than constantly be afraid. But when his friend Skink gets beaten up so badly that he has to go to the hospital, Sammy thinks he may be in over his head. He decides to build a golem–a mythical protector from Jewish folklore, made of clay and animated by the ineffable name of God. But this monster doesn’t just protect him and Skink from The Boyz, he is also a great drummer for their rock-jazz-klezmer fusion band! But golems come with warnings. They will protect you until they don’t.

Praise

“It’s funny and scary and thrilling”–Kirkus

“Yolen and Stemple weave a magical coming-of-age story that addresses the themes of bullying, friendship, good versus evil, first crushes, and making good decisions.”–Booklist
