Is It Any Good?

Price won an Edgar Award for 2010's The Interrogation of Gabriel James, and this book keeps up the standard for its well-crafted, fast-moving plot and engaging characters. It's a window into a world whose darkness most readers won't personally experience, but they'll find much to admire in Angel's tenacity and resourcefulness, and much to think about in the lessons she learns along the way.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
