An empowering story of independence, resilience, and one girl's decision to act in the face of impossible odds and indifference. A must-read for fans of the series and a nail-biting introduction for readers discovering it for the first time. --School Library Journal Fast-paced and engrossing... Zu's first-person narration creates maximum suspense as events escalate in intensity, and an occasional flashback keeps the story off-balance in a way that ups the ante for the good guys. Although several threads are wrapped up by book's end, there is room for more installments in this popular series. --Booklist
