Review quote

A mash-up of philosophy, mystery, and horror, this haunting YA novel takes on all of these subjects with satisfying results
--School Library Journal (starred review) The story poses the kind of ethical questions so popular in basic philosophy courses: if you had the opportunity to save a complete stranger at great risk to you or your family, would you do it? Since such quandaries are the stuff of teen existential exploration, this will please those of a philosophical as well as a supernatural turn of mind.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Quietly thrilling.
--Kirkus Reviews There are gothic elements to this fantasy thriller to keep fans of the genre satisfied.
--Booklist Online Give this to any student who enjoys the supernatural.
--School library Connection An adventurous read.
