"The main characters are all well-drawn, strong women, and the wartime events are well researched and accurate. The alternative history and wartime plot, which reads like a movie, will appeal to many."--School Library Journal
"The experiences of female soldiers in the military are plainly and honestly immersive, powerful tale."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The fast pace of this novel, along with its relatable characters and engaging plot, will easily draw in reluctant readers. Grant's well-researched details of living conditions that WWII soldiers endured will appeal to fans of historical fiction. Readers of this book will be anxiously awaiting the sequel."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
"What if American women had fought alongside men in World War II? Michael Grant gives us a magnificent alternate history that feels so real and right and true it seems impossible that it wasn't. Every one of these fictional soldiers has wrapped herself around my heart."--Elizabeth Wein, Award-winning and New York Times Bestselling Author of Code Name Verity
"Michael Grant is a master of twists that not only tear at his readers' consciences, they hold a mirror up to our here and now and insist we consider what might otherwise be. FRONT LINES is a masterpiece of speculative story crafting."--Andrew Smith, Michael L. Printz Honor winning author of Grasshopper Jungle
"Front Lines does what great epics are meant to do: tells us the human side of history with honesty, wit, and clarity. Just because it didn't happen this way, doesn't mean it isn't true."--C. Alexander London, author of Proxy and Dog Tags and Tides of War series
"Fascinating and powerful. This alternate history of WWII is relevant to the American military today, where men and women serve side by side. Men have no monopoly on courage or determination, and they never did. A great book."--Wayne K. Maynard, Major, USA (Ret.), Ph.D.
★ "The history is illuminating and fascinating, but where Grant excels even more is in the immersive storytelling and compelling bonds among the multifaceted characters. Just as classic war novels demonstrate how war can reveal common humanity, Grant's exploration of women in battle is no different."--Booklist (starred review)
★ "All of the protagonists are well-developed individuals, but also represent 'every soldier girl who carried a rifle, dug a hole, slogged through mud, steamed or froze, prayed or cursed, raged or feared, ran away or ran toward.' A gripping and heart-wrenching tale."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
