Praise

A New York Times bestseller

Starred Review:

“This engaging eco-cautionary tale… will captivate readers while giving them plenty to think about.”—School Library Journal

“. . . vintage Sachar for the way it brings big ideas to everyday drama.”—The Horn Book

“Sachar blends elements of mystery, suspense, and school-day life into a taut environmental cautionary tale.”—Publishers Weekly

“An engrossing plot . . .a most entertaining ride . . . .Readers will devour this delightful book just as they did with HOLES. A unique story that keeps readers on their toes.”—VOYA

“Sachar is a master at compact and unintimidating plotting; the school story unfolds with swift authenticity in its own right and then becomes tautly suspenseful.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
