"SHADE ME is a wild ride, illuminating the gritty side of Los Angeles and the beautiful people who populate it. Fans of Veronica Mars will fall in love with Nikki Kill." -- Michelle Gagnon, author of the Don't Turn Around trilogy "This dark tale hits all the hallmarks of a traditional hardboiled mystery, full of dirty secrets and potential betrayals. Brown (Torn Away) skillfully uses Nikki's condition to put a fresh spin on time-honored noir conventions." -- Publishers Weekly "Nikki is a force to be reckoned with." -- School Library Journal "Nikki's endearingly heedless with a careless confidence, and her tenacity may earn respect." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Nikki is a complex character with potential for growth, and her gritty determination to find the truth, while it almost undoes her, is what makes her compelling." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
