Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tough issues such as divorce, nightmares, domestic violence, safety, and awareness are well balanced and provide material for thoughtful discussion.” VOYA
“Has enough suspense to keep children interested, and it will also appeal to reluctant readers.” School Library Journal
“This quick read, which accurately reflects that most missing children are either abducted by relatives or run away, effectively builds suspense as the police make progress and Matt grows increasingly afraid of his gun-toting father.” Booklist
“Highly suspenseful… Kehret…always demonstrates a deft touch in maintaining suspense while keeping her narrative light enough for the age of her intended audience. It’s entertaining and enlightening for older children as well as some reluctant adolescent readers.” Kirkus Reviews
