* "[A] provocative thriller.... Fans of Cory Doctorow's work should love this book."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
*"From the opening pages, this is an action-packed thriller with the FBI, secret service, thousands of rats, a kidnapping, and a little romance.... Bacigalupi scores again."--Library Media Connection, starred review
"A suspenseful, page-turning yarn.... Bound to provoke thought."--Kirkus Reviews
"This gripping, outstanding contemporary story... builds at a steady pace, leading to increasingly dramatic plot twists and a climax that will leave readers' hearts pounding."--School Library Journal
"A searing indictment... Bacigalupi, unafraid to name names, makes readers question the morality of everyday decisions... and recommends that all of us be cynics when it comes to megaconglomerates....Multi-award-winning Bacigalupi is becoming an indispensable voice in YA."--Booklist
"This is a gripping, unsettling read that will no doubt prompt further discussion long after the climactic, cinematic finale."--The Horn Book
"An exciting read... Bacigalupi has done an impressive job of placing the reader in the front seat."--VOYA
"The book's snappy pace, caper set-up, and sharp political perspective easily save the (novel's) day and will bring in readers of thoughtful high action."--The Bulletin
