Editorial Reviews

The Horn Book Guide
"Peterson keeps readers engaged from page one of this suspenseful and touching (yet admirably unsentimental) hi-lo book."
Washington State Young Adult Review Group
"Explored some tough issues, yet did it in a fast-paced way that will appeal to reluctant readers."
Library Media Connection
"I found the book a quick but thought-provoking read, the characters believable and the story compelling. I would recommend its purchase both for the library and the classroom."
CM Magazine
"[Peterson] writes accomplished suspense, especially given the limitations placed on high interest-low vocabulary titles. Readers will be hard-pressed to stop at the end of each short chapter, and the author convincingly conveys Cameron's fear and confusion...Characters, even Cameron's deceased father, are complex and multi-dimensional...Peterson's novel should find an audience with suspense fans of all reading levels. Recommended."
Booklist
"Compact, dialogue driven writing keeps the atmosphere tense as Cam races toward a confrontation with his father's killer...A resonant, quick read from a reliable reluctant reader series."
Children's Literature - Laura J. Brown
Cameron's father has been killed in a car accident. Even though Cameron loved his dad, he wishes that the family could have enjoyed more of his father's attention. Everyone now considers him the man of the house, but in some ways he already was, long before his father died; because his dad spent so much time engrossed in books. It has been hard on the entire family since the accident. His mom is working two jobs; and Cam is left to take care of Leah and the house while also going to school each day and keeping up with his homework. One snowy afternoon he notices his mother yelling at a man outside their home as she is returning home from work. The man turns out to be Bryan Klausen, the man who was responsible for the car accident that killed his father. Cam learns from his mom that Klausen wants to help their family out in some way because of what he did. Cam and his mom are not interested in any help from this man. When Klausen shows up at Cam's job, and then at the grocery store where they shop, and finally at Leah's school, Cam decides to take action against this man, whom he considers a stalker. Cam is determined to protect his mom and sister; even if he is not 100% sure that Klauen is truly stalking his family. When Cam confronts Klausen, he discovers something he does not expect. This book is a quick easy read, but also insightful and reflective. Reviewer: Laura J. Brown

She takes another ragged breath. "That..." She waves toward the front door and gulps. "That's the man who killed your father."
