Product Details


[A] thoughtful read and a provocative title for discussion.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

References and parallels to Alice in Wonderland are numerous and apt as the themes of self-perception, identity, and recognizing the consequences of action and inaction emerge. … The action and emotion accelerate toward the end of the book… and the conclusion is at once thought-provoking and satisfying. Readers who stick with the Rider will be rewarded.
—School Library Journal

Troubled-teen tropes grow like weeds in young adult literature… [I]t can all get repetive, and predictable, and it’s not often a writer in the genre finds a new take. Colorado author Todd Mitchell found one in his new book… By peeling back rather than building up the intricate, decreasingly-opaque layers of Dan’s anguish, what’s revealed is the complicated, wounded, beautiful core buried so desperately deep inside him. Inside all of us.
—The Denver Post
