Reviews

Choyce creates a book in which the plot starts quickly and the reader is instantly attached to the main character...Any teacher or librarian who works with reluctant readers should definitely include this book.-- "VOYA"
Jeremy is a believable and multidimensional character - mature, thoughtful and not always predictable in his actions...The power of the story lies in the depiction of a young man making his own decisions and taking responsibility for the consequences.-- "CM Magazine"
The story line is well peppered with tension and action. The subject matter and brusque style of presentation may also help to invite teen readers to turn off the rock music and pick up the book. Recommended.-- "Canadian Book Review Annual"
This book would certainly appeal to teenagers. The language is inviting without being intimidating. Jeremy's voice rings true as it highlights his passion for music...The story deals with teenage angst without being corny or superficial.-- "Resource Links"
