The response is much the same throughout his fan base. Reviewer Samantha Dewitt shares, "This is a book that definitely paints pictures with words. You feel like you're the social outcast, standing on the outside, looking in and wondering what it is that society feels is so wrong with you. Looking at both sides from the point of view of the extremes and the clear and brilliant views of someone who can really paint the picture is the best way to know."

As a poet, singer-songwriter and photographer, creativity is in his blood. Kloschinsky has published and received numerous awards for his creative works in these art forms. These latest accolades for his poetry holds special meaning for him. When asked about receiving these literary accomplishments, Kloschinsky stated, "It's extremely gratifying to win these two awards and validate all the years I've spent learning about poetry. It was always my biggest dream to be recognized as a legitimate poet."
