"Lange keeps tension high as the situation quickly escalates from bad to worse . . . a fast-paced read with a gripping blend of suspense and emotion." - Publishers Weekly

"Lange keeps the plot twisting . . . As in her debut novel, Lange deftly blends big issues (bullying, special needs, abuse) into a story of two imperfect, memorable characters." - Booklist on DEAD ENDS

"Lange writes realistically about teens with rough lives, and readers will believe in the friendships, feel Billy's pain of abandonment, and appreciate the honesty of the not-tied-up-with-a-bow ending." - School Library Journal on DEAD ENDS

"A fast-moving tale tailor-made for reading in study hall, when a road trip of any kind sounds really good." - BCCB on DEAD ENDS

"Using current, hot-button topics--cyberbullying, obesity, and teen suicide--the author weaves a compelling tale sure to draw teens in." - starred review, School Library Journal on BUTTER

"Lange's emotionally expansive first novel is dark, funny, painful, and powerful." - Publishers Weekly on BUTTER

"The premise alone is enough to break your heart . . . This is no doubt a strong, gutsy debut." - Booklist on BUTTER

"While this is definitely an anti-bullying book, it carries a weighty message without didacticism." - Library Media Connection on BUTTER
