Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Moriarty’s story comes across as matter-of-fact yet curious, topped off with a strong dose of humor (think Margaret Mahy). As always, her irresistible characters help readers navigate a tantalizingly complex plot that will leave them eagerly awaiting the next book.” Hornbook Magazine (starred review)
“Ultimately, this is a story of two teenagers helping each other figure out their places in their respective worlds.” School Library Journal (starred review)
