Reviews

"I absolutely loved this book...It is appropriate for the very topics we have been covering in my reading class about survival. This is definitely an author I will look for in the future. A nice, clean simple read that lifted my spirits."-- (03/17/2010) "Choyce crafts an unvarnished tale around two loners of different generations, featuring the requisite bully, plenty of dirt-bike action, a suspenseful climax, and a happy ending. The lack of complications will make this particularly appealing fare to offer younger or reluctant readers."-- (06/01/2010) "A fast-paced read...The book twists and turns like a tricky dirt-bike track and flows just as quickly. One doesn't need a special interest in the vehicles to get pulled in, but a passion for them will enhance the story."-- (07/01/2010) "Josh's need to be his own person and the familiar difficulties will resonate with the audience...[Choyce] is convincing in his portrayal of the versatility of teenagers and their ability to succeed in stressful situations."-- (04/01/2010) "Reckless offers its audience a world perfectly suited for a dirt bike and a haunted mind. Its fast pace and suspenseful chapters make it a must read for adolescents and teens interested in extreme sports...Teen readers will appreciate that his embodiment of the rebelliousness his age group is renowned for is complemented by his resourcefulness...Recommended." --CM Magazine (02/05/2010)
