"Staunton excels at portraying the lighter side of teenage situations...Ace's Basement is a safe place for any young teen."
CM Magazine - September 12, 2013
"Ace’s inner dialogue is superbly written, easy to relate to and likable as an accident-prone, self-doubting, sincere teen. Although brief, the novel manages to draw on issues of rivalry, popularity, the role of technology in bullying, teen romance, all the while maintaining a lighthearted and humorous tone...Staunton successfully portrays the struggles and humiliations of high school and the pressures of fitting in, succeeding, and seeking romance. Highly Recommended."
