This author never disappoints!! The follow up book to Shelter will leave you hungering for more, more, more. He keeps you on edge
the entire book and I feel this series should be read by all Mr. Cobens fans, I love the new character Mickey and his sidekicks are so
interesting and riveting. You will not want to put it down and by the end you're in a MUST KNOW what happens state of mind. This author
proves that he is very hip with todays youth and sucks you in immediately. All ages will be drawn into this series.

I have read Shelter and this novel. Both of the books are very good. I know that it has to do with young adults, but it was still good. I can't wait for the next installment, if there is one.

I was so excited when I found this in our High School Library. I love ALL of Harlan's books. If you've never read a HC book before - you will NOT be disappointed!!! He is one of my favorite authors!!

I liked the second Mickey Bolitar book better than the first, as it wasn't so outrageously unbelievable and also I know the characters better (and Myron was in it throughout!)....looking forward to #3
