Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Richard Ferrone] gives each character a distinctive voice and wrings every bit of humor and pathos out of the text in an astonishing performance.” School Library Journal
“While the first books focused on introducing the abundant characters and settings, this plot moves ahead at full speed…Add in thematic plot strands about the cost of freedom, a budding romance, and hints of the next adventure to come, and readers will agree with Candy: “So much still to do: to explore, to solve, to feel.”  Booklist
“Fans will revel.” Kirkus Reviews
