Reviews

Library Media Connection

“Realistic and believable with likable characters, it would be a good addition to any fiction collection for young adults.” —Library Media Connection

Kirkus Reviews

“McClintock keeps her writing at a level simple and clear enough to attract both middle-school and reluctant high-school readers. She portrays both Robyn and Nick as flawed people, but both learn and grow, finally making both interesting and attractive characters…. Great for dog lovers and young mystery fans.” —Kirkus Reviews
