Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Barely recovered from the adventures of Shelter (2011), Mickey Bolitar plunges full force into his second mystery when classmate Rachel’s skull is grazed by a bullet and her mother is killed. With the help of Ema, a feisty goth, and Spoon, a kid with Asperger’s-like behavior, the high-school sleuth resolves to track down the shooter at all costs. Meanwhile, there are ongoing questions surrounding his father’s death, the Abeona Shelter’s secret mission to save children, and whom to trust. When not saving his town from murder and corruption and getting to know more about his sidekicks in the process, Mickey hopes to make his school’s basketball team, just like his estranged uncle. His uncle’s imparted advice (“There are always consequences to being a hero”) help direct the teen’s choices and slowly heal their awkward relationship. Mickey’s fast-paced, first-person narration won’t disappoint his growing fan base. The satisfying conclusion leaves enough open-ended questions to continue this gripping series. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The only question is whether Coben’s adult megastardom crosses over to youth. Given the big author tour and print and TV ads, we’re betting on it. Grades 8-11. --Angela Leeper

Review

FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS:
 
“Coben deftly weaves these multiple plot threads into a compelling whole . . . An involving thriller that moves like lightning.”
 
 
FROM BOOKLIST:
 
“Mickey’s fast-paced, first person narration won’t disappoint his growing fan base. The satisfying conclusion leaves enough open-ended questions to continue this gripping series.”
 
 
FROM VOYA:
 
“The character development is solid . . . and readers will enjoy Mickey’s internal dialogue as well as his relationships with Ema and Spoon . . . Recommend this for readers who enjoy Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider series or Charlie Higson’s Young James Bond novels.”
