Editorial Reviews

Library Media Connection
"This short novel will appeal to reluctant readers with its fast pace and adventurous scenarios...The non-specific location will allow the reader to fill in the landscape, and helps draw the reader further into Bex's exploits."
Booklist
"A fast-paced action-adventure story. It will appeal especially to teens who read below level, though the page-turning suspense it generates and the fascinating hook of urban-exploration should grab any reader."
Resource Links
"Will hook reluctant, male, teen readers as a gripping, high energy, high risk adventure story...An excellent recreational reading choice, and a great addition to literature study groups."
KeenReaders.org
"The book is fast-paced and does capture the attention of the reader and hold onto it until the end."
NMRLS Youth Services Book Review
"An adventure story with a very small bit of romance sprinkled in. The main characters seemed realistic, likable and easy for teens to relate to. The sentences are short and the vocabulary was fairly simple; good for the struggling reader."
The Horn Book Guide
"Tight, concise writing, along with a fast-moving plot, makes this a good choice for struggling and reluctant readers."
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—During the day, Bex keeps to himself and stays under the radar, but at night he is the rock star of urban exploration, a hobby for people who like to break into buildings, explore the forbidden interiors, and then post pictures to online forums. He has hacked into more buildings than any other urban explorer in the city. He is careful not to take anything but pictures and leaves nothing but footprints. When a new student, Kieran, shows up and asks him to be part of a dangerous, but potentially lucrative, exploration mission, Bex finds himself breaking his own rules when he agrees to participate. When it turns out that Kieran has ulterior motives, Bex has to figure out how to get them both out of the situation alive. The book is intended for reluctant readers, and they will appreciate the authentic dialogue, and fast-paced ending, but the rest of the story line lacks enough tension and suspense to get them there.—Rachael Myers-Ricker, Horace Mann School, Bronx, NY
