Praise for Save the Enemy

“Savvy, fun and fast-paced, Save the Enemy is full of twists and turns that you won’t see coming.  Ukuleles, libertarians, a dog named Roscoe, a hot boy, and ghosts, all rolled into a twisting, turning mystery? This book had me at hello.” 
—Jodi Lynn Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Peaches, May Bird, and Tiger Lily.

“Greenwood’s polished writing, crackling dialog, and irresistible characters make Save the Enemy a standout. Zoey’s up against some bizarre struggles, but her reactions are achingly familiar: a character to root for. A smart thriller that serves up surprises from start to finish.”
—Sophie Littlefield, nationally bestselling author of Garden of Stones

“Full of dead ends, sharp turns and swerving mishaps this mystery novel is a nonstop, high-speed chase for the truth.”
—The New Orleans Advocate

“Readers will be pulled by Zoey’s strong inner compass and martial-arts
Prowess… gnarly yet buoyant. Readers of detective, spy, and crime novels, as well as Ayn Rand fans, will find tidbits to enjoy as Zoey and family prevail against the odds.”

“An intricate tale of confusion and loss as Zoey attempts to peel away the mysteries surrounding her family and her unusual upbringing… This is good for ravenous fans of thrillers with a twist.”

“Part mystery-thriller, part coming-of-age tale, and part romance with a pinch of the paranormal.”
—School Library Journal

“Thrilling, chilling, funny and true to life… a dream come true for readers.”
—Gary Shteyngart

“Reminiscent of A Wrinkle in Time, Greenwood’s debut for teens twists and turns with mysterious men, real bullets and numerous candidates for worst parent ever…. [readers] with a philosophical bent may find references to Kant, Nietzsche and Ayn Rand entertaining.”
Kirkus Reviews

Save the Enemy isn’t your standard YA novel… a madcap adventure.”
