“Readers will find Sam, who starts out as a pretty selfish character, and ends up as a hero, quite realistic. One of the strengths of the novel is its strong character growth, without the story sounding like a lesson. It is a valuable addition to a classroom or library hi/lo collection for young readers.” – Resource Links
