"McClintock has created an action-packed plot with believable teenage characters and a captivating narrative that moves rapidly to an unpredictable conclusion."
Tri State YA Book Review Committee - September 1, 2012
"McClintock has done it again filling the book with suspense from the first to last page in vocabulary suitable for hi/lo readers...Full of twists and turns, this is a book that will appeal to boys and girls."
Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group - May 14, 2012
"This fast paced novel has just enough suspense and intrigue to grab a struggling reader's attention and hold it captive throughout the entire plot. Kenzie is a typical teen, and his language and actions are reminiscent of what any high school boy might do in a similar situation....McClintock does a fantastic job of providing us with just enough clues to keep our interest but not too many clues that will make the surprise twist blaringly obvious. The plot is wrapped up very nicely in the end and there are no loose ends left to confuse readers or raise any questions...Struggling readers, especially males, will be able to relate to the characters and events."
VOYA - April 1, 2012
"A short novel in a popular series for challenged readers, One Way and other Orca Soundings volumes offer teen material in an easy format. Short and simple in language and plot, the stories have compellingly authentic main characters designed to engage young readers without insulting them. These inexpensive books are good additions to high-interest, low-reading-level collections."
Resource Links - April 1, 2012
"[McClintock] keeps readers hooked all the way. Kenzie is quickly developed into a strong character that we sympathize with and root for. One Way is packed with emotion and speeds through until the smart twist at the end. If a reluctant reader is looking, Orca Soundings don't disappoint and McClintock may even raise the bar."
CM Magazine - January 20, 2012
"McClintock's story is faced-paced and well-suited to the high-interest, low-vocabulary format of the 'Orca Soundings' series...The reader is quickly drawn into Kenzie's mistake and his ensuing struggles...For those readers who enjoy drama and emotional novels but hate to give up happy endings, One Way is sure to entertain."
