Review quote

"A dark, funny, scary, suspenseful tale that will entertain mainstream and adventure/horror readers alike.... The basic elements that made her book "The Outsiders" a long-time bestseller are present in this rousing read. This is a contemporary "Treasure Island" with a genre-bending twist."--"Publishers Weekly "on "Hawkes Harbor"

"I gave myself to "Hawkes Harbor" from the very first page. I loved the mystery of it. Unfolding so deliberately. And then such horror, I wanted to echo Jaime's fevered plea: 'Don't let it be dark...Don't let it be dark!' " --Bestselling author R. L. Stine
""
"Set in Delaware and spanning the decades from the 1950s to the '70s, "Hawkes""""Harbor" is an adventure tale with plenty of twists, turns and action."--"San Antonio Express-News"

"Hinton offers a suspenseful, thought-provoking book, and the cross-genre plot makes for an entertaining read."--"The Oklahoman "on "Hawkes Harbor"
