"...very accessible for teens who may struggle with reading. Perhaps what I enjoyed most about this novel is that Alex doesn't come up with any easy answers...I would highly recommend this high-interest low-vocabulary selection."

- Angela Thompson Resource Links

"The author does a nice job with characterization, writes smoothly, and manages to infuse her story with enough suspense to hold her readers' attention."
