Washington State Young Adult Review Group - December 1, 2011
"Explored some tough issues, yet did it in a fast-paced way that will appeal to reluctant readers."
Library Media Connection - October 1, 2011
"I found the book a quick but thought-provoking read, the characters believable and the story compelling. I would recommend its purchase both for the library and the classroom."
The Horn Book Guide - September 1, 2011
"Peterson keeps readers engaged from page one of this suspenseful and touching (yet admirably unsentimental) hi-lo book."
Booklist - May 1, 2011
"Compact, dialogue driven writing keeps the atmosphere tense as Cam races toward a confrontation with his father's killer...A resonant, quick read from a reliable reluctant reader series."
CM Magazine - February 18, 2011
"[Peterson] writes accomplished suspense, especially given the limitations placed on high interest-low vocabulary titles. Readers will be hard-pressed to stop at the end of each short chapter, and the author convincingly conveys Cameron's fear and confusion...Characters, even Cameron's deceased father, are complex and multi-dimensional...Peterson's novel should find an audience with suspense fans of all reading levels. Recommended."
