Reviews

"Hair-raising chases through dark, menacing secret passageways combine with an effective mingling of genuine school angst and the more spectral variety to create a scary, suspenseful, and chillingly immersive experience." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A twisted mystery. This ghostly tale lives up to the chills suggested by the title." -- Publishers Weekly

"Avi takes readers on a wild ride where the dead do far more than haunt the living. Hand this spine-tingling work to readers who have embraced Ransom Riggs's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Cornelia Funke's Ghost Knight. " -- School Library Journal

"Will leave more than a few hearts pounding. Give this to readers who like an old-fashioned ghost story with a contemporary twist." -- ALA Booklist

Praise for CRISPIN: THE END OF TIME: "Avi guides his hero toward a final, very satisfying destiny in this wonderfully realized conclusion to the Crispin trilogy. A heart-stopping read .... Thrilling and beautifully wrought." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Praise for CRISPIN: THE END OF TIME: "The action is nonstop and danger is around every corner. The first-person voice lends a sense of urgency to the novel, and Avi's writing style is as elegant and engaging as ever." -- School Library Journal

Praise for CRISPIN: THE END OF TIME: "This final volume in the Crispin trilogy showcases the same strengths as the earlier books: brisk, suspenseful narrative with effortlessly interwoven details of medieval life and provocative questions of ethics and morality. Another rousing page-turner." -- The Horn Book
