"Kaye gives her readers lots of twists and turns to keep us guessing. The characters, even the secondary ones, are quirky and memorable... My favorite aspect about the book is that it was a mystery yet was quite funny which made the story even better. Within the pages of the book, Kaye touches on a bigger problem within our society, especially in schools: bullying. I absolutely love a book that not only entertains me yet takes on an issue and teaches me something new about it. Kaye did exactly this.
I'm really loving this series, and I'm looking forward to the next book!!!"

"Poison by Punctuation had every element a good story should have. An intriguing plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There's an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that's something I really look for in a good book." Piaras--The Book Review
"Emma and Leslie are smack dab in the middle of the action, and although they beg to differ with everyone else, they are definitely investigating. Using a bullying exercise to get students to admit their motives is a stroke of genius, but will they see the signs before they become the victims? It's a nailbiter with plenty of hooks, and it brings up two significant issues in today's world: adoption and bullying. I love that the author offers some resources at the end."

"You can tell that the author has been a teacher, which is what makes the school setting for this series really authentic and compelling. The teachers write up lesson plans and have to attend anti-bullying seminars, they also flag up the issues of religion/bullying/sports bias in schools which got me thinking without distracting me from the plot.
I can't wait for the next book in the series!" Nia--The Most Sublime Things
