"Fast-paced action, plot twists, and cliff-hanger chapter endings will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Haddix's tone and language and the absence of graphic violence make this an ideal selection for younger readers eager for a dystopian novel."--School Library Journal "July 2016 "
"Haddix gives readers lots to mull over regarding conflict, justice, and prejudice."--Publishers Weekly
"With her trademark clarity, sympathetic and dimensional characters, and effective chapter hooks, Haddix's latest series starter once again raises questions with real content and impact. Are there other worlds?"--Booklist
"This conversation-starting first in a series is a penetrating science-fiction thriller that adroitly explores the issue of prejudice."--Kirkus Reviews
