"The morally complex story avoids simple answers and is taut with tension . . . Provocative, timely, and intense." --Starred review, Kirkus Reviews

"Lange finds a fresh perspective on bullying by focusing on all those left behind in the aftermath of the violence that ensues--the bullies and the bystanders." --School Library Journal

"Lange's tightly plotted, fast-moving mystery shows great understanding of the power dynamics of social cliques. . . . Young coders will be thrilled to see themselves portrayed in a strong and positive light beyond the usual stereotypes." --Booklist

"Shows a different perspective on cyber bullying than most stories portray." --School Library Connection

"A new contemporary thriller that's part Breakfast Club, part Breaking Bad . . . Lange's story is gripping . . . Well paced, with twists and turns that will take readers by surprise." --Booklist on REBEL, BULLY, GEEK, PARIAH

"Give this to readers who enjoy action-packed crime dramas spiced with a little danger and a healthy dash of heart." --BCCB on REBEL, BULLY, GEEK, PARIAH

"Lange keeps tension high as the situation quickly escalates from bad to worse . . . a fast-paced read with a gripping blend of suspense and emotion." --Publishers Weekly on REBEL, BULLY, GEEK, PARIAH

"Lange keeps the plot twisting . . . As in her debut novel, Lange deftly blends big issues (bullying, special needs, abuse) into a story of two imperfect, memorable characters." --Booklist on DEAD ENDS

"Lange weaves a beautiful and believable tale of friendship for readers of any age who can appreciate the challenges of everyday life." --Library Media Connection on DEAD ENDS

"Using current, hot-button topics--cyberbullying, obesity, and teen suicide--the author weaves a compelling tale sure to draw teens in." --Starred review, SLJ on BUTTER
