"[A mystery] with indelible characters that genuinely warms the heart."
CM Magazine - October 25, 2013
"This intriguing, somewhat dark tale delves into the lives of poor children who have suffered violence and abuse. It has an element of fantastical realism shown in the mysterious character of Jacky Wacky. His uncanny ability not to be seen by adults but believed and cherished by children is a thread that provides hope and mystery throughout the novel...The maturity of the subject matter will appeal to older teens and adults who are becoming independent readers...Highly Recommended."

"Features a plot that moves quickly and is filled with action...The sentence structure is simple, and the vocabulary is easy to understand, making it a great read for English-language learners."

"A short novel for beginning adult readers ties mystical urban legends with inner-city life...With innovative characters who speak like real people, and a plotline that progresses steadily and convincingly."
Publishers Weekly - July 12, 2013
"Worthy and positive...with the weary but determined voice of its earnestly captured narrator and its hopeful message for exploited and abused inner-city youths...Appropriate for adult literacy and ESL programs."
