"Slender, easy-to-read, and strongly purposeful...This upbeat tale...[is a] solid entry in the Orca Currents series."
CM Magazine - October 1, 2010
"[Orca] couldn't have picked a better time to publish Slick…A well-written, fast-paced, high interest novel with compelling characters written for reluctant readers…Liza is an appealing, interesting and realistic character. The book also encourages girls and tweens in general to become interested in political issues and current events…Highly Recommended."

"This novel would work well with an environmental science component. Largely idealistic, Liza shows that one person can make a difference in both their community and in the wider world…A subject area that is certain to be of interest and appeal to those with an environmental aptitude; especially of interest with the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico."
