★ "Anderson deftly balances snarky humor and heart-thumping action with affecting discussions about friendship, inclusivity, and mental health. The surprise-studded plot seamlessly integrates both Anderson's clever, unique mythology and excerpts from the Ladybird Handbook, and the realistically rendered, intersectionally diverse cast is kind, charismatic, and full of moxie." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

★ "Anderson. . .has written a ridiculously fun and campy horror romp, which also incorporates thoughtful commentary about mental and emotional health, inclusion, and facing your fears." --Booklist, Starred Review

★ "Buffy fans. . .will be. . reveling in the whirl of teen angst and ichor-spattered fun." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★ "With a sly sense of humor and nostalgia . . . author Lily Anderson offers a clever subversion of "chosen one" narratives as the novel explores tantalizing "what ifs" like "What if Buffy had just gone to a psychiatrist?" and "What if Girl Scouts were masters of cookies--and karate?" It's an absurd premise, but Anderson makes it work through unself-conscious world building and a skillful blend of fantastical and real-world threats. . . It's hilarious and heart-wrenching in equal measure. " --BookPage, Starred Review

"This campy novel is original and funny with adventurous and likeable characters who play off each other with ease despite their personality differences. The connection that the main character makes with the new recruits is heartwarming and real. The creatures are descriptive and readers will enjoy the teen angst and Prudence's keen decision-making." --School Library Journal

"Sharp, fun characters on both sides of Prue's life bring wit and humor, while the baddies are conceptually cool . . . The true focus here, however, is Prue, who's struggling with . . . the complex mix of pride, protectiveness, and guilt that she brings to her Ladybird role. . . Many readers will likely relate to the weight of family obligations and how they may conflict with the development of an independent adolescent identity." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
