"A novel to kick-start a summer of reading, the kind to devour in one sitting....This is a book for teenagers -- it gets gruesome -- as well as adults who have discovered the pleasures of teen novels." - Sonja Bolle 06/24/21012 "A carefully researched, precisely written tour de force; unforgettable and wrenching." 03/01/2012 "This is a rare young adult novel entirely about female power and female friendship, with only the faintest whiff of cute-boy romance." - Marjorie Ingall 05/13/2012 "Wein balances the horrors of war against genuine heroics, delivering a well-researched and expertly crafted adventure." 04/06/2012
