Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Nikki is her father's daughter. Just like her dad, Nathan "The Broker" Tate, she is focused, strong-willed, and one of the very best poker players in Las Vegas, a city filled with pros. But when Nathan, recently released from death row for a murder he says he didn't commit, is murdered himself, Nikki has to summon all of her inner resources to find out what really happened to her dad. Why was he so obsessed with the new grand casino in town? What is his connection with its infamous owner, "Big" Bert Carlino? And what really happened the night that landed her father in jail? Learning the answers might be a gamble that could cost Nikki her life. The latest book from Edgar Award finalist Giles is just as fast-paced and suspenseful as his previous titles. All of the characters in the diverse cast are well defined and authentic. Those characterizations, and the believable ways in which Nikki interacts with everyone around her, are the novel's greatest strengths. The mystery never feels forced and seems to flow naturally, gaining momentum as Nikki peels away each layer until everything is ultimately revealed. One slight quibble: some of the poker descriptions don't seem accurate, but these would likely be caught only by someone with poker experience and won't derail the story. VERDICT A fast-paced, compelling mystery and memorable characters and relationships make this selection a first choice for most YA collections.—Erik Knapp, Davis Library, Plano, TX

Review

Praise for Overturned
"An utterly compelling whodunit."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Giles, a founding member of We Need Diverse Books and two-time Edgar Award finalist, is in top form, weaving together the threads of his whodunit-and-why and resonantly depicting his characters' home and school lives. As a poker genius Nikki may be a singular sort of teenager, but she's grounded in desires and motivations that make her story as moving as it is thrilling."--New York Times Book Reviews

"Another Giles winner."--BCCB

"A fast-paced, endlessly intriguing mystery."--Booklist

"Giles excels at pulpy crime drama, including a romance with a wealthy casino heir, scattering a trail of clues and bluffs to keep readers guessing."--Publishers Weekly
*A YALSA Top Ten Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers*

Praise for Fake ID
"Giles ups the ante of YA witness-protection tales with a chilling foray into a much broader conspiracy, teasing readers with plausible suspects and clever misdirections that play off the tropes of running-from-the-mob stories."--BCCB (starred review)
"Fast action, judicious plot twists, and sufficiently evil teens and adults should keep thrill-seeking readers awake long into the night."--Kirkus Reviews

"Conspiracy theorists and thriller fans alike will be guessing right up to the end of this exciting debut."--Booklist
*A YALSA Top Ten Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers*
*Edgar Award Finalist*

Praise for Endangered
"Frequent plot twists and short, fast-moving sentences keep tension high. Suspenseful and often wise."--Kirkus Reviews
"Giles writes a fast-paced, gripping suspense novel with an engaging whodunit mystery."--VOYA
"Giles crafts an unpredictable psychological thriller filled with murky choices and colorful characters."--Publishers Weekly
"This title delivers another skillfully devised plot, supported by a fully fleshed cast whose identities . . . complicate but do not solely define their characters."--BCCB
*Edgar Award Finalist*
