From the PublisherStarred Review, Publishers Weekly, August 26, 2013:
"Fredericks delivers an intense but hopeful tale of bullying, revenge, and grief... [proving] her gift for conveying the intensity of adolescence."
Booklist, August 1, 2013:
"Fredericks’ reader pleasing new novel is a page-turning, well-realized horror story of revenge gone awry and the possibility of finding redemption in the power of goodness."
School Library Journal, September 2013:
"This darkly honest look at bullying, high school cliques, and teen drama amid family tragedy will have readers glued to the page for every last unexpected plot twist and turn."
Kirkus Reviews, September 1, 2013:
"This intriguing psychological thriller...is actually a realistic and frank treatise on karma and the redeeming power of female friendship. Fredericks displays an insider’s knowledge of dramatic adolescent interactions through unaffected prose and dialogue-heavy chapters that make the pages fly. A refreshing take on the mean-girl trope."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, December 2013:
"Fredericks gives Toni a vivid narrative voice and character, a girl who credibly enjoys male attention and shrugs at female jealousy...An unusual mix of enticing readability and thoughtfulness, this makes an interesting complement to Medina’s Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass."
