"A lonely teen must use her odd powers to track down a killer. . .Lexi and Jane's tentative (and unusual) relationship is sweet. . .Berquist effectively tackles the destructive nature of grief and loneliness." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The atmosphere of the grim dog-eat-dog world of the seedier parts of Los Angeles provides an enticing noir flavor. Lexi's aching loneliness is palpable in her narration. . .The romance between Lexi and Jane offers a bright spot, and their relationship develops organically from merely a source of comfort to genuine love. . . .a compelling page turner." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Gritty and high-concept, this cross-genre murder mystery has plenty of appeal for horror and crime fiction fans, and the beginnings of a star-crossed f/f romance add depth." -- ALA Booklist

"Horror meets mystery in this supernatural whodunit for lovers of mystery and suspense. . .A fun, fast-paced read for students looking for a thrill." -- School Library Journal
