Reviews

Praise for Overturned
"An utterly compelling whodunit." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Giles once again spins a twisting, involving mystery played out among a diverse cast, and again race plays a cunning hand, with the African-American Tate family painfully aware that Nate's conviction had as much to do with his identity as evidence...[A]nother Giles winner." --BCCB
"A fast-paced, endlessly intriguing mystery." --Booklist
"A fast-paced, compelling mystery." --School Library Journal
"Giles, a founding member of We Need Diverse Book, has written a fast-paced mystery." --VOYA
"Giles excels at pulpy crime drama, including a romance with a wealthy casino heir, scattering a trail of clues and bluffs to keep readers guessing." --Publishers Weekly
"Giles, a founding member of We Need Diverse Books and two-time Edgar Award finalist, is in top form, weaving together the threads of his whodunit-and-why and resonantly depicting his characters' home and school lives. As a poker genius Nikki may be a singular sort of teenager, but she's grounded in desires and motivations that make her story as moving as it is thrilling." --New York Times Book Review

Praise for Fake ID
"Giles ups the ante of YA witness-protection tales with a chilling foray into a much broader conspiracy, teasing readers with plausible suspects and clever misdirections that play off the tropes of running-from-the-mob stories." --BCCB (starred review)
"Fast action, judicious plot twists, and sufficiently evil teens and adults should keep thrill-seeking readers awake long into the night." --Kirkus Reviews
"Conspiracy theorists and thriller fans alike will be guessing right up to the end of this exciting debut." --Booklist
*An ALA Top Ten Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers*
*Edgar Award Finalist*
Praise for Endangered
"Frequent plot twists and short, fast-moving sentences keep tension high. Suspenseful and often wise." --Kirkus Reviews
"Giles writes a fast-paced, gripping suspense novel with an engaging whodunit mystery." --VOYA
"Giles crafts an unpredictable psychological thriller filled with murky choices and colorful characters." - Publishers Weekly
"This title delivers another skillfully devised plot, supported by a fully fleshed cast whose identities . . . complicate but do not solely define their characters." --BCCB
*Edgar Award Finalist*
