    E ARC from Netgalley.com Felix Knuttsen and his single mother Astrid move around a bit in Vancouver because Astrid finds it hard to keep a job after her career teaching art founders. After the death of her mother, Felix's Mormor, it's been hard for the two to maintain homes as well. W...

    Another Nielsen book, another winner for me. I am so happy I discovered Susin Nielsen, because every one of her books end up on the "makes-me-happy" list. She has done it once again with No Fixed Address, which was, as intrepid reporter Winnie Wu stated in the book, a feel-good story. ...

    Meet Felix Knutsson, the charming, earnest protagonist at the helm of No Fixed Address. As one might infer from the title, this book is about life in a Westfalia van. In other words, it is a story about homelessness. But, even more than that, Susin Nielsen's novel is about friendship, ...

    *Big thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the review copy.* If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. As always Susin writes wonderfully flawed characters in an honest and non judgmental way while tackling serious issues. Her ability to balance the heartbreaking with...

    Another fab middle grade story from Susin Nielsen. A thoughtful examination of homelessness and family dynamics, with plenty of great characters, one-liners, and hope. ...

    ALL THE STARS for this absolutely amazing book by Canadian author @susinnielsen. Many thanks to the @kidlitexchange network and @randomhousekids for this ARC (#partner); all opinions are my own. ~*~*~*~*~* Felix is almost thirteen, loves a game show called Who, What, Where, When and...

    I picked up a proof copy at the NYA Literary Festival. I really enjoyed this book. The story follows Felix and his mother Astrid. Astrid struggles to keep a job and as a result, she and Felix end up living in a van. Felix finds it difficult to keep this a secret from his friends an...

    With echoes of Slumdog Millionaire, this is a heartwarming story that looks at an increasing problem in modern times. Felix and his mother are having an adventure, she says. Having been asked to leave their apartment, they are going to live in a van. That is not an adventure, it?s d...

    I was lucky enough to win a copy of No Fixed Address at YALC, and I?m so glad I did as I gave 4.5 stars to this awesome and cute and touching middle grade story. I loved Felix?s story and how the author really brought home the realities of his situation - not just being ?betw...

    I received an ARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The book is due to be published on September 11, 2018 and I am going to make sure I have a hard copy in hand as soon after it?s released as possible. I loved this book!!! Well, I cried over this bo...

    Felix is your typical middle school kid except for one little thing. He and his mom live in a van. It was supposed to be temporary, but as the months go by it becomes more of the norm. His mom Astrid has slumps and can't keep a job. Despite the fact that Felix has no fixed address or p...

    This is another exciting read from Susin Nielsen. After the last book, "Optimists Die first",which was fantastic, I didn't expect to like this one as much, but it is great! The story follows a young boy whose life goes downhill as his mother's finances go from bad to worse. They end ...

    By pure happenstance of library availability, I read Just Under the Clouds and No Fixed Address back-to-back. Although both books cover the topic of homelessness, feature protagonists of similar age, and are considered middle-grade (I'll get back to that point), they are vastly differe...

    13-year-old Felix and his mum are 'between homes' and the only solution is for them to live in a camper van that belongs to one of his mum's hopeless boyfriends. How long can Felix keep the secret of his homelessness from his school friends, his family and the authorities? I love Sus...

    Fabulous! One of the best books I have read all year. Felix and his mother live in a Westfalia and are making the best of a temporary situation...until it starts to stop feeling temporary. I thought Nielsen handled this perfectly, she shows the difficulty of being one the "hidden homel...

    What a beautiful and new story this is! Felix and his mom Astrid find themselves not *technically* homeless but after four months go by, Felix starts to suspect a fix might not be as easy as his mom thinks. ?No Fixed Address? starts conversations about homelessness, the price...

    Excellent story about the ?hidden homeless?, people without a permanent address. This is a great read and would be a great class read aloud for upper elementary and middle school. ...

    Another Nielsen book, another winner for me. I am so happy I discovered Susin Nielsen, because every one of her books end up on the "makes-me-happy" list. She has done it once again with No Fixed Address, which was, as intrepid reporter Winnie Wu stated in the book, a feel-good story. ...

    ALL THE STARS for this absolutely amazing book by Canadian author @susinnielsen. Many thanks to the @kidlitexchange network and @randomhousekids for this ARC (#partner); all opinions are my own. ~*~*~*~*~* Felix is almost thirteen, loves a game show called Who, What, Where, When and...

    I picked up a proof copy at the NYA Literary Festival. I really enjoyed this book. The story follows Felix and his mother Astrid. Astrid struggles to keep a job and as a result, she and Felix end up living in a van. Felix finds it difficult to keep this a secret from his friends an...

    Adorable middle grade book that deals with homelessness, mental health, friendship, and how society deals with these issues. Felix aged 12 and 3/4, lives with his mother Astrid. After Astrid loses her job and they lose their home, they find themselves "between places". Felix misses ...

    I was lucky enough to win a copy of No Fixed Address at YALC, and I?m so glad I did as I gave 4.5 stars to this awesome and cute and touching middle grade story. I loved Felix?s story and how the author really brought home the realities of his situation - not just being ?betw...

    I received an ARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The book is due to be published on September 11, 2018 and I am going to make sure I have a hard copy in hand as soon after it?s released as possible. I loved this book!!! Well, I cried over this bo...

    Felix is your typical middle school kid except for one little thing. He and his mom live in a van. It was supposed to be temporary, but as the months go by it becomes more of the norm. His mom Astrid has slumps and can't keep a job. Despite the fact that Felix has no fixed address or p...

    This is another exciting read from Susin Nielsen. After the last book, "Optimists Die first",which was fantastic, I didn't expect to like this one as much, but it is great! The story follows a young boy whose life goes downhill as his mother's finances go from bad to worse. They end ...

    13-year-old Felix and his mum are 'between homes' and the only solution is for them to live in a camper van that belongs to one of his mum's hopeless boyfriends. How long can Felix keep the secret of his homelessness from his school friends, his family and the authorities? I love Sus...

    Excellent story about the ?hidden homeless?, people without a permanent address. This is a great read and would be a great class read aloud for upper elementary and middle school. ...

    I received an arc of this book at YALC. This wasn?t bad or anything, it just really wasn?t for me. I think I?m far too old and I ended up finding it slower than I?d expected and some parts seemed too convenient and unrealistic. I posted a full review here: https://bookloverk...

    I became interested in this book because of a shout put by Arthur Slade. He spoke so highly about it, I knew I had to give it a read. Being completely honest I had not encountered any of Susin Neilsen's works before giving this one a read, even in my years as a bookseller. As an introd...

    Nielson writes about the important subjects of hidden homelessness, depression and poverty in a powerfully authentic and funny way. I adored Felix. His wit, kindness, humour and nerdiness are utterly charming, and the loyalty he has for his mother is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking...

    I thank the publisher for an ARC of this book. Felix Fredrik Knutsson is 12-3/4 years old and has to determine ways to navigate life. ?Astrid and Daniel were great people?but they were not great parents." (176) I loved the main character of No Fixed Address, Felix, and also his...

    Another memorable protagonist and story from Nielsen, the topic of homelessness an important one to expose. I've liked Nielsen's books previously, and this sounded as though it was going to be another bittersweet story with characters in difficult positions. Felix is 12, and yes, hi...

    13-year-old Felix and his mum are 'between homes' and the only solution is for them to live in a camper van that belongs to one of his mum's hopeless boyfriends. How long can Felix keep the secret of his homelessness from his school friends, his family and the authorities? I love Sus...

    Fabulous! One of the best books I have read all year. Felix and his mother live in a Westfalia and are making the best of a temporary situation...until it starts to stop feeling temporary. I thought Nielsen handled this perfectly, she shows the difficulty of being one the "hidden homel...

    What a beautiful and new story this is! Felix and his mom Astrid find themselves not *technically* homeless but after four months go by, Felix starts to suspect a fix might not be as easy as his mom thinks. ?No Fixed Address? starts conversations about homelessness, the price...

    Excellent story about the ?hidden homeless?, people without a permanent address. This is a great read and would be a great class read aloud for upper elementary and middle school. ...

    I received an arc of this book at YALC. This wasn?t bad or anything, it just really wasn?t for me. I think I?m far too old and I ended up finding it slower than I?d expected and some parts seemed too convenient and unrealistic. I posted a full review here: https://bookloverk...

    I became interested in this book because of a shout put by Arthur Slade. He spoke so highly about it, I knew I had to give it a read. Being completely honest I had not encountered any of Susin Neilsen's works before giving this one a read, even in my years as a bookseller. As an introd...

    Nielson writes about the important subjects of hidden homelessness, depression and poverty in a powerfully authentic and funny way. I adored Felix. His wit, kindness, humour and nerdiness are utterly charming, and the loyalty he has for his mother is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking...

    ?Some kids grow up with scary stories about monsters, or ghosts, or bogeymen under the bed. My scary stories were about the MCFD. And unlike the ones about monsters, ghosts and bogeymen, these stories weren?t make-believe.?** Felix and Astrid are doing okay, not great, but oka...

    Susan Nielsen creates beautiful characters: individuals you believe in and care about. Felix and his mother, Astrid, are homeless. We learn this from the get go. The rest is the revealing of what happened to get them to this place and what might happen next. I got my digital copy of...

    I thank the publisher for an ARC of this book. Felix Fredrik Knutsson is 12-3/4 years old and has to determine ways to navigate life. ?Astrid and Daniel were great people?but they were not great parents." (176) I loved the main character of No Fixed Address, Felix, and also his...

    Another memorable protagonist and story from Nielsen, the topic of homelessness an important one to expose. I've liked Nielsen's books previously, and this sounded as though it was going to be another bittersweet story with characters in difficult positions. Felix is 12, and yes, hi...

    Thank you to @randomhousekids and @kidlitexchange for a review copy of this book. All opinions are my own. This is a book you truly need to read the moment it is released on 9.11.18! Felix?s story will grab you from the very first page. We immediately feel his fear about being in ...
