"A thoroughly entertaining novel."―Publishers Weekly
"The combination of coming-of-age story, Lovecraftian horror, and mystery is at turns gently funny and intensely scary, a tough balance that Gregory (Afterparty) pulls off successfully."―Library Journal
"A tale handled with confidence and control, with loads of salty, piscine atmosphere...Superior, with plenty of crossover teen appeal."―Kirkus Reviews
