"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Clarke delivers a suspenseful, timely tale with a plot taken straight from the headlines. Faith's sister Laurel reappears after her kidnapping 13 years ago. What begins as a story about readjusting to life after the unimaginable happens gradually morphs into a gripping thriller. Slowly, Laurel reveals subtle discrepancies that lead Faith to believe something is amiss. Is Laurel an imposter? Or is Faith jealous? Readers share Faith's doubt and cheer her on as she starts to discover the truth. Instead of confiding her fears in Michel, her father's partner and Faith's most trusted adult, Faith confronts Laurel, and what follows is a convoluted but page-turning conclusion that Clarke cleverly lays tracks for earlier. The strong hook and trail of clues keep readers guessing and overshadow slight weaknesses, such as a brief lull in the pace, an unfinished thread regarding the betrayal of Faith's boyfriend, and fuzzy setting details. Clarke's indictment of vulturelike media and a poetic metaphor about cuckoo birds will linger in readers' minds, lending this novel a bit more gravity than typical teen thrillers. VERDICT This mystery will have wide appeal and keep teens riveted.—Laura Falli, McNeil High School, Austin, TX

Review

Clarke excels at genuine page-turners with a heart of darkness and I read this in one greedy sitting. The Bookseller A satsifying and...all-too-credible thriller Inis Undoubtedly one of the most exciting and talented YA writers in Britain Library Mice on Cat Clarke I wholly, unabashedly and completely recommend this book Inis Magazine on Cat Clarke Clarke...succeeds brilliantly, thanks to the reality of the characters and the depth of the emotion The Scotsman on Cat Clarke Moving, thought provoking and utterly gripping from start to finish Mizz on Cat Clarke Blending coming-of-age elements with psychological suspense, Clarke carefully weaves a story in which the unnerving truth is slowly unveiled. As with the best thrillers, the truth is far from a straight line, and what readers believe changes with every turn of the page. In this fast-paced and darkly entertaining novel, Clarke's true success lies is in crafting a realistic and haunting story of two young women who redefine what it means to be sisters.
