"Featuring effective worldbuilding, this is a great, suspenseful tale of terror for upper middle graders."--School Library Journal

"a rapidly moving story with an interesting emotional arc."--Publishers Weekly

"Tension drives the gripping tale to a pulse-pounding conclusion." --The Horn Book

"Lawrence . . . offers a menacing, contemporary tale of dread, danger, and revenge. Portraying family dynamics and middle-school antics with equal insight and attention to detail, Igor's first-person narrative is absorbing." --Booklist

"Readers seeking a (relatively safe) thriller will likely find this fills the bill, with an added bonus of a memorably complex but relatable narrator." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Friendship difficulties provide a contrast and an anchor to the terrifying threat, and the various plot elements are deftly tied together in a fitting twist that will have readers quickly turning the pages. . . . Filled with suspense and intrigue." --Kirkus Reviews

"Lawrence is a gifted storyteller and this book presents a good story with some twists and turns. . . The heart of the story is about finding a place to feel safe and overcoming past trauma and those are certainly good messages." --School Library Connection
