Reviews

"Accomplished screenwriter August artfully thrusts readers into a whole new world, right alongside Arlo . . . This is just the first volume in a new series, so readers won't have to wait long to plunge back into the mysterious Long Woods." --Booklist

"Much like other popular series such as 'Percy Jackson, ' [this is] an exciting fantasy novel grounded in reality with a strong emphasis on friendships and great characters. This new series will appeal to fans of mystery and adventure as well as reluctant readers." --School Library Journal

"The mysteries--from what makes Arlo a target to why a girl who vanished years ago has reappeared to him and only him--become increasingly more compelling as more pieces are revealed . . . Readers will find Arlo relatable, especially if they've ever struggled to fit in themselves." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A thrilling adventure full of magic and wonder. John August is a master storyteller." --Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

"A fast, fun, and fearless tale. Arlo's adventures feel both completely real and entirely magical. I loved it!" --Ally Condie, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Matched and Summerlost

"A masterful mix of mystery and adventure, set in a supernatural scouting troop. Reading this book made me wish I hadn't dropped out of Cub Scouts." --Geoff Rodkey, New York Times-bestselling author of the Tapper Twins series
