Editorial Reviews

Review

"Action-packed, engrossing, and satisfyingly unpredictable, Last Girl Standing is highly recommended reading for mature teens to adults... Absolutely riveting." -D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"Kaptanoglu offers an inclusive cast, a plot that allows for tension and tragedy as well as personal growth, and an adventure for our modern times
." -Publishers Weekly

From Kirkus Reviews
"Kaptanoglu (Dreadmarrow Thief, 2017) writes an engaging, often humorous tale that includes romance, teamwork, heroism, some tragedy, and a little paranoia, along with a likable, smart, and cool cast. They're racially and culturally diverse; for example, popular soccer star Myles has two dads and is Asian-Caucasian. (Though this would seem to indicate generally progressive politics, the town "voted for Trump.") Many plot elements have a comic element, but the story also affords much opportunity for personal development, like Sierra's unresolved guilty feelings over some childish misbehavior that indirectly catalyzed her father's deportation to, and death in, El Salvador. The adventure moves along rapidly with plenty of action while saving a few surprises for the end. Fast-paced, entertaining, and exciting, with a fresh, believable voice." -Kirkus Reviews

"A creative science fiction, young adult adventure... a fresh story in a genre full of recycled tales... a fun adventure for all fans of dystopia, science fiction, or survival tales.... Ms. Summerville's performance is one full of energy and life. She brings out the youth and personalities of the characters perfectly." -InD'tale Magazine (audiobook review)

Readers' Comments
'This is such a cool mystery. I loved how the plot developed and how the kids worked together to try to save the town. The hero is brave and the characters develop a lot as the story unfolds.' Girl, aged 15

'Sci-fi is my 'thing' so this was perfect for me. A tiny bit slow in the beginning but then things take off in the second half. The author is fab at keeping the reader guessing. The ending was mega!' Boy, aged 14

'A very tense story, Sierra is like Katniss from The Hunger Games. Brave, courageous, and will do anything to save her family. Brilliant read.' Girl, aged 16

'The character of the kids was very flawed and real-feeling, which is what I liked most. I think this author is a good writer who knows what YA like to read.' Girl, aged 16

To Sum It Up:
'A cool mystery that turns into a high-octane, sci-fi adventure. A FINALIST and highly recommended.' The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
