Praise

"This thought-provoking and highly entertaining dystopian fantasy is certain to spark discussion among teens." 05/08/2006

"Bitingly funny and unexpectedly heartwarming, Bo's coming-of-age is a winner." 06/01/2006

"Pete Hautman's novels deal with complex, interesting ideas and never waste time. In fact, they move so fast they would be regarded as unsafe in the dystopia he offers us in his latest book, RASH: you'd have to wear a helmet just to take them off the shelf." - M. John Harrison 11/12/2006
