"Between the danger Jules's mother brings to the family and the cringe-worthy cult rituals described, this story is sometimes difficult to read--but sometimes the most important stories are the most challenging."--VOYA "The seclusion of the cult makes its practices all the more horrible as they operate outside the normal structures of legal accountability; the police's frustrating refusal to engage and the mild narrative scolding of middle-class privilege play to readers who want to explore questions of heroic good versus supernatural evil in realistic fiction. A titillating ending suggests, however, that Mae's immersion in cults may not be over."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
