"Several very mature themes are presented in this novel, and difficult topics such as pedophilia, prostitution, and drug abuse are explored in the third-person narrative. The unsentimental approach may cause anxiety for some sensitive, younger teens. However, the exposition of these realities for contemporary Canadians provides several excellent opportunities for critical thinking and reflection. Teachers and parents who promote the examination of tough issues for their students and children will appreciate the novel's directness. Taylor's economical use of language and the novel's rapid pace provide the reader with a compelling plot. Minimal description and action-oriented character accounts keep the tension appropriately high throughout the evolution of the plot. Fans of the suspenseful writings of Caroline B. Clooney and Margaret Peterson Haddix will welcome this engaging Canadian alternative. Highly Recommended." -- CM Magazine"This book is both a riveting suspense book and a fascinating character study." -- Books For Children blog
