Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Gout's characters are believable and immensely likable and their friendship serves as a delightful and realistic anchor amid the fast-moving chaos. Science and technology may take center stage in Gout's fictional Game, but it's the less flashy craft of writing that sells the story. The New York Times Book Review
A fast-moving story that presents its protagonists with intriguing moral choices Publishers Weekly
Strong characters who show their bravery throughout, friendships that do not falter, and ethics that do not fail, even when characters are faced with the impossible, are a refreshing change to most teenage novels.
