"There is a magic to speaking to children and H.Y. Hanna has completely captured it."- Readers' Favorite

"We are loving this book. My 10 year old son who has a short attention span cannot get enough." - Tucker Rush

"I've read a few books marketed for middle-grades or younger this year and I have to say that this is hands down the best suited for those ages. It has a great plot, some truly well-rounded characters (with more depth than what I find in most adult novels these days) and a climax that will keep you on the edge of your seat."-  LitChick Hit List
