    " I enjoyed this book--with reservations. It got extremely message-oriented and didactic and also crammed in A LOT of side issues and plots. Also, not sure if this book is as relevant as it was even before it got published... I did enjoy the fast pace, high-stakes that Lyga excels at. Not his best work, but if you are already a fan, you'll probably like it. "

    " My least favorite of Barry Lyga's books, it still manages to end strong. "

    " When Kevin rescues a classmate from a serial killer, he's suddenly thrust into the small-town spotlight and hailed as a hero. But he doesn't feel like one, especially because he has a secret about why he was on the spot to save Leah in the first place. When the mayor buys him a car and slaps on some patriotic magnets, Kevin's father, who fought in Kuwait, makes him take them off. Caught by the school newspaper, Kevin is forced to defend his action, and gets embroiled in a debate about patriotism and free speech. "
