Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sharp political commentary and strong parallels to the treatment of minorities in the U.S. ground the world in reality, while the well-rounded and ethnically diverse supporting cast will cause readers to root for them…the breathtaking action and cliff-hanger conclusion will leave teens desperate for more.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Buckley packs this propulsive novel with one walloping scene after another, and there’s enough action, romance, and high-stakes drama to keep a wide array of readers interested.” Booklist
“Readers will find themselves immersed in this semi-edgy, race-against-the-clock world that’s waiting to implode.” Kirkus
