"Affirming narrative and important subject" Kirkus Reviews, January
"Van Steenwyk appropriately paints the story with excitement and intrigue, and she includes how Warne's success as a detective helped create more opportunities for women. Warne's fascinating exploits and penchant for disguise will easily hold their attention." Booklist, February 1, 2016
"The pages are filled with colorful drawings, and readers will appreciate the wide-eyed, cartoonlike characters. An interesting story about a woman who played an important role in our nation's history." School Library Journal, February 2016
"Belloni's candy-colored digital art goes for deliciousness over gravity, keeping the mood perhaps oddly light even as history hangs in the balance." The New York Times Book Review, March 9, 2016
