Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dionne is attentive to details of Boston institutions, music, and geography, and the believable dialogue and characters, complicated family dynamics, and threat of danger make this mystery hard to put down.” Publishers Weekly
“Teens will like Moxie and Ollie for their believable adolescent responses and admire them for their sophisticated Internet skills and geocaching expertise, both of which enable them to outsmart gangsters and the FBI. Fans of Blue Balliett’s Chasing Vermeer will appreciate the similarities.” Booklist
“[A] fast-paced, National Treasure–style mystery…[A] breathless, action-packed tale.” Kirkus Reviews
