Editorial Reviews

"All teenagers will relate to this story...The plot moves quickly and characters are, at times, humorous, and other times, serious...With social networking issues at the forefront of society today, readers will find the topic to be relevant."

Tri-State YA Book Review Committee

"An engaging story for middle school readers...Walters has written a book that would be an excellent starting point for discussion about political activism."
