Reviews

"An exciting adventure with Dickensian touches, horrible villains and pulse-pounding suspense."
--The Buffalo News

"I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in history and willing to take the time to understand the old English."
--The Denver Post

"Action-packed and inspirational--another stunner."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"One thing is certain: it may be the end of the world, but there is no end to the pleasure Avi's latest evokes."
--Booklist, starred review

"Newbery Medal winner Avi s a skilled writer, and here he cleverly blends page-turning adventures with America's painful social history. Readers will be entertained -- and stressed out -- even while learning about the plight of the slaves and indentured servants who helped build our country."
--Deseret News
