Praise for Hero Complex

“Teens who enjoy fast-paced mysteries will appreciate the twists and turns of the story that pits Devon against family and friends.”

“A fast-paced mystery with a large cast of characters, all of whom have hidden motivations and secrets. The wealthy and elitist world of the Keaton School provides a great backdrop . . . a series that promises to deliver intriguing new mysteries with each new book.”

“Embracing the full gamut of teenage emotion and vernacular, Hero Complex is a mystery filled with suspense and intrigue to devour with relish.”
—New York Journal of Books

“Froley keeps the momentum going with an even pace and pulse-pounding suspense. Teen readers enamored by a Gossip Girl atmosphere of staggering wealth will be elated, as will fans of ballsy and enterprising teen-girl detectives.”

“[A] fast-paced, plot-driven mystery.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Twists and turns keep the plot moving.”
—School Library Journal

Praise for Escape Theory

Escape Theory is a riveting psychological journeyMargaux Froley truly nails it. The characters sing on the pages, the mystery leaves you breathless, and the world is spooky but recognizableyou feel like you’re in the thick of things with Devon every step of the way. I will never think of Nutter Butters the same again, and I can’t wait for the next Keaton School installment!”
—Sara Shepard

“This is Froley’s first novel and and I can’t wait for her to bring another book out. I loved the strong lead characters and finally a teen girl who doesn’t give everything up for the perfect guyDevon’s guy is far from it. If you like a mystery, a good teen story or a bunch of very different characters, this is for you.”
