VERDICT Readers looking to continue with the adventures of Rosa and Jasper will be delighted with new supernatural dilemmas and dark twists."--School Library Journal
"Intricately plotted."--Booklist
"Alexander's message--that acceptance and empathy, not building walls, is the answer--will resonate."--Publishers Weekly
