Publishers Weekly, starred review
A suspenseful, page-turning yarn.... Bound to provoke thought.
Kirkus Reviews
A searing indictment... Bacigalupi, unafraid to name names, makes readers question the morality of everyday decisions... and recommends that all of us be cynics when it comes to megaconglomerates....Multi-award-winning Bacigalupi is becoming an indispensable voice in YA.
From the opening pages, this is an action-packed thriller with the FBI, secret service, thousands of rats, a kidnapping, and a little romance.... Bacigalupi scores again.
Library Media Connection, starred review
An exciting read... Bacigalupi has done an impressive job of placing the reader in the front seat.
This is a gripping, unsettling read that will no doubt prompt further discussion long after the climactic, cinematic finale.
The Horn Book
A powerful, impassioned novel that asks some uncomfortable questions
Sci-Fi Bulletin
A plot so expertly turned that you'll be nailed to your seat
