Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] skilled and compulsive tale.”

    Sunday Times

  • “Themes from Patterson’s popular adult titles When the Wind Blows and The Lake House waft through this YA thriller, the author’s first in the genre.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “James Patterson’s facile writing and Evan Rachel Wood’s expressive, wide-eyed reading make this entrée for the teen audience a remarkable success…Wood has all the slang and colloquial pacing down pat. Teens will love the chaotic chases and frantic action—Wood in Max’s first-person narrative has the aura of a comic book superhero. The abridgment is smartly done, and Wood keeps listeners’ attention.”

    " This was an awesome book! The author made it seem like I was with them in the book! I also like how theres a puzzle that needs to be solved and slowly some questions are answered but more questions arise. I also love the adventure and the danger they face, but I love more the twists that some up in the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Bekah Booklover | 1/15/2014

    " I wasn't sure if this book was gonna be any good or not, but I had heard people on the internet talking about it a while back and decided to check it out. I bought a copy and it only took me one day to read. But not because it was good. It took me one day to read because a) it was really easy, and b) I just wanted to get to the end of it so that I could start a better book. I didn't like it very much, although I think the idea is good, I just didn't really like the style of writing. "
