School Library Journal - October 1, 2005
“This is an intense, plot-driven book that hits many familiar yet upsetting notes. The tension is meted out in a deliberate manner. The spare text makes it a strong choice for reluctant readers.”
Hi-Rise - September 1, 2005
“Though an easy-to-read novel, this will be a good read for any teen, and worth much discussion given that so many girls and women are at some point stalked. Be sure to give this to a young girl you care about.”
SouthWestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group - August 3, 2005
"[The] danger comes through clearly in the story and will keep the readers engaged until the end. A good, fast read."
VOYA - August 1, 2005
“It is a quick, easy read with a high-impact ending. It will appeal to teens looking for an easily digestible stalker beach read.”
KLIATT - July 1, 2005
"A quick read, Dead-End Job is a real page-turner."
Monday Magazine - May 12, 2005
“Simply written, with an emphasis on plot and suspense, it makes for a fine non-television alternative.”
CM Magazine - May 1, 2005
“Suspenseful yet believable...The stalker scenario is realistically plotted and a good subject for a hi-lo book as this situation is one that may be (unfortunately) experienced by some young women...Recommended.”
