"This short novel will appeal to reluctant readers with its fast pace and adventurous scenarios...The non-specific location will allow the reader to fill in the landscape, and helps draw the reader further into Bex's exploits."
NMRLS Youth Services Book Review - December 27, 2011
"An adventure story with a very small bit of romance sprinkled in. The main characters seemed realistic, likable and easy for teens to relate to. The sentences are short and the vocabulary was fairly simple; good for the struggling reader."

"The book is fast-paced and does capture the attention of the reader and hold onto it until the end."
Booklist - October 15, 2011
"A fast-paced action-adventure story. It will appeal especially to teens who read below level, though the page-turning
suspense it generates and the fascinating hook of urban-exploration should grab any reader."
Resource Links - October 1, 2011
"Will hook reluctant, male, teen readers as a gripping, high energy, high risk adventure story...An excellent recreational reading choice, and a great addition to literature study groups."
