"Offers reluctant readers (or those reading below the assigned grade level) an edgy, fast-paced, and thought-provoking storyline written in a very straight-forward, comprehensible style. Highly Recommended."

"Zack's story is engaging."
Booklist - November 15, 2011
"A gentle, thought-provoking story on the fickle nature of fame...Denman's story avoids simplified characters, creating a
surprisingly layered treatment of media obsession."
Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group - November 14, 2011
"This fast-paced story is excellent for reluctant readers. Moreover, the sound-color synesthesia Zack experiences will intrigue many readers. An overall quick read that is recommended for purchase by public libraries."

"Orca Currents has once again hit the mark...The setting and plot come together in a very satisfying way. The most powerful element in the text, however, is undoubtedly the emotional honesty of the characters Denman creates...Zack could be a real person, and his responses to the situations he finds himself in resonate with authenticity."
