Reviews

"A tense psychological drama with a voice that pulls you in and a twist you won't see coming, Dive Smack is an instant Hitchcockian classic!"--Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten

"A twisty, witty thriller readers will love puzzling through to the very end. A visceral, delightful debut." -- Carrie Mesrobian, author of William C. Morris award finalist Sex & Violence

"This riveting debut will plunge readers into an accelerating coil of twists and turns as if in free fall, plummeting them from a precipice as they cling to the dwindling hope of safe entry into the mysterious darkness below." --S.A. Bodeen, author of The Compound

"Brodsky's debut combines an engaging school story, filled with best friend shenanigans, first love, and a fascinating look at competitive diving, with a tense psychological mystery." -- Booklist

"In an impressive debut, Brodsky injects her teen drama with ambiguity, and a subtle hint of paranormal phenomena, leaving readers to guess at what's really going on. Strong characters and a compelling mystery make this a real page-turner." -- Publishers Weekly

"The story combines intriguing elements, so that just when readers may think it is headed in one direction, it shifts or pulls from a new genre...Readers looking for an adolescent psychological thriller will not be disappointed."-- Voya, Meghann Meeusen.

"A taut thriller with a twist ending that will blow your mind." -- Kim Liggett, Bram Stoker Award-Winning Author of The Last Harvest

"Complex, thrilling, and with a pitch-perfect narrative voice, Dive Smack will leave you on the edge of your seat and unable to put this one down." --C. Desir, author of Bleed Like Me

"Heartbreaking, human and heroic, Dive Smack is a Perfect 10!"-- Karen LaFace, 1992 USA Olympic Springboard Diver

"A taut roller coaster of a thriller chock full of dark family secrets, twisty lies, and finally, the redeeming power of truth."-- Michelle Zink, author of This Wicked Game
