"Riveting.... In a way that makes for compulsive reading, Lefkowitz
has exposed the substrata of evil in a seemingly idyllic town. Most
troubling of all, you come away with the realization that what
happened in Glen Ridge could happen anywhere."
--Jonathan Harr, author of A Civil Action
"One of the most essential...reads in recent memory."
--Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Heartbreaking.... A brave and unequivocating book, as important as Susan Brownmiller's Against Our Will."
--Newsday "Extraordinary. A calm, methodical, painstakingly researched, and important book that should be read by parents and educators alike."
--The New York Times Book Review
