"Readers will be drawn into the story with its swift, adventurous plot."--Booklist Online
STARRED REVIEW: "Three kids, a pet pig and a helpful chauffeur must unravel a mystery of cosmic proportions. Creative details, likable characters and an X-Files-worthy mystery keep the pages turning, but it is the supportive and loving Banks family that makes this story shine. A surprise ending will encourage readers to think beyond the text and grapple with some real-world dilemmas. Inventive, entertaining and thought-provoking."--Kirkus
"Vaughan (The Ability) puts an intriguing spin on the classic SF conceits of teleportation and telepathy, providing a plausible way for these young heroes to face off against an all-powerful corporation. The open-ended conclusion leaves room for further exploration of a concept that is full of potential, and Vaughan's considered portrayal of 10-year-old Emma, who doesn't let her deafness slow her down in the least, is particularly well done."--Publishers Weekly
"This action-packed science fiction novel is a page-turner. Vaughan has created characters that the reader will root for, especially with the strong bond that she has established between Parker and Emma. Her imaginative gadgets and devices will delight fans.Recommended."--School Library Connection
