Reviews

"An atmospheric tale."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The expressive writing, masterful tension, and parallels to modern group dynamics create a powerful and relevant page-turner. "--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"An excellent supplementary choice for curricular studies of Arthur Miller's The Crucible, this will also find readers outside the classroom, who will savor the accessible, unsettling, piercing lines that connect past and present with timeless conflict and truths."--Booklist (starred review)
"In subtle, spare first-person free-verse poems, the author skillfully demonstrates how ordinary people may come to commit monstrous acts. Haunting and still frighteningly relevant."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"The verse format is fresh and engaging, distilling the actions of the seven accusing girls into riveting narrative."--School Library Journal (starred review)
