"A complete and engaging story...The book does not spell everything out, and only hints at a future for the characters; it makes readers use their brain in a fun way. [Orca Currents] are smart books that will hold the interest of reluctant middle school readers and would be a good purchase for all libraries."

"Van Tol writes with just enough attitude to make it sing, and [her] characters—except for the cruel Kamryn—are sympathetically drawn."
