Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Emily Woo Zeller’s portrayal of Samara is reflective of her character, especially the struggles she deals with and the memories that plague her…Andrew Eiden’s narration is perfect for Beck’s point of view. Both voices help create a story that is well described and pulls listener into its world.” AudioFile
“An elaborate dystopian narrative that fairly prickles with suspense…Masterful characterizations, world-building, and pacing make for irresistible reading…Cameron is a writer of prime caliber.” School Library Journal
“Cameron’s complex exploration of what it means to live with a lifetime of memories is fascinatingly developed…Both a politically charged adventure and culture study, this thought-provoking dystopia stands firmly on its own.” Booklist (starred review)
“Diverse, well-drawn characters abound…Intricately woven narrative threads come together in a suspenseful denouement sure to leave readers hoping for another installment.” Kirkus Reviews
