* “Will make readers giggle out loud.” – School Library Journal, starred review
* “[Allison] not only offers a credible mystery…but also, by allowing readers inside the heads of both girls, provides particularly strong characterizations–much more substantial than the ubiquitous first-person narrative would have offered.” – Booklist, starred review
