-Tracy Riva, Midwest Book Review
"... a stunning new middle grade novel that is part historical fiction, part action adventure mystery, and all around fun. Featuring a cast of wacky, interesting kids I was hooked on page one and enjoyed every twist and turn of the creative plot. Gardner is a writer to watch."
-Dan Elish, award-winning author of Born Too Short: The Confessions of an Eighth-Grade Basket Case
"... an exciting, smartly written book filled with adventure, intrigue, and history in a modern school setting. Luke Spooner's accompanying art is simply spot on."
-Mercedes M. Yardley, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Little Dead Red
"... the book held me captive from beginning to end. You captured the middle school mind perfectly, showing their insecurities as well as the amazing strength that is just below the surface. Bravo!"
