Reviews

Praise for Nightbooks: "Fans of gloomy fare such as Lemony Snicket, Adam Gidwitz, or Neil Gaiman will find an equally twisting and terrifying tale here." --School Library Journal (starred review)
"A thrilling tale of magic that is just scary enough."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Praise for the Thickety series: "Darkly bewitching. Readers will devour each twist and turn of the plot, right up to the startling conclusion."--School Library Journal
"The twisted plot is perfectly matched by the twisted atmosphere. . . . Spine-tingling."--Booklist (starred review)
"Just the right balance of humor, mystery, and scariness for a preteen audience. A fun addition to the growing genre of scary books for middle graders; readers will be eager to see more of this smart and spunky trio in further spooky adventures."--Kirkus Reviews
"White opens the Shadow School trilogy with a well-paced thriller of a new-kid-at-school narrative. Tension builds to a crescendo when an overnight rescue attempt goes awry, and the ending promises more adventures to come for Cordelia and her friends."--ALA Booklist
"The preteens' friendship is realistic and appealing. The suspense is engaging and consistent throughout, and there's a perfect mix of scares and mystery that will entice even the most fainthearted of readers. VERDICT This delightful blend of friendship, suspense, and spectral sightings belongs on most shelves."--School Library Journal
"The story balances the spookier elements with the humorous and/or difficult going-ons of middle school. Heart and humor elevate the formulaic tropes, making this as easy quick pick for a just creepy enough read."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
