Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Williamson
Mystery, intrigue, and a race against time—all this spells danger for Chass who has just moved into town with her mother. She is walking through the snow when she trips over the dead body of Miss Hill, a teacher from the school. Chass begins to investigate the death and discovers all the town's secrets and skeleton past. In it she becomes the focus of the killer's attention and gets a clue in a song…she feels compelled to solve the mystery when her mother, wearing Chass' yellow hat, gets shot. The killer meant that to be her. The race is on in the snow blizzard to reach the silo. What is the significance of the silo? Why the farm? Who is Kyle and why if he left town so long ago is he back in their lives? What happened to Kyle's family? How far in the white-out is the answer? All of this and more are revealed in White-out, a mystery in the "Hunted" series. The book stands alone, with no need to have read a previous book in the series to make sense of the story. Chass is being hunted and she must find the answer before the answer finds her. Reviewer: Patricia Williamson
VOYA - Mary Ann Harlan
For sixteen years Chass has been on the run with her mother, hiding from Kyle Van Epps. Recently Chass' life has been even more complicated; she has found friends she has had to leave behind, encountered murders to solve, and launched a budding career as a singer. Readers find Chass in a small town in Minnesota on the day of a white-out blizzard. In the opening pages, she trips over the body of her music teacher, Miss Hill. Faced with a town chief of police who is over his head, a mother who wants to leave town in a blizzard, and a strong desire to stay in town, Chass decides to solve the crime herself. Imagine her surprise when she finds a connection to Kyle Van Epp's childhood. In this third book in the Hunted series, Sorrells follows the formula from the first two books—a quick hook with murder within the first ten pages, red herrings, and suspense. Chass faces wolves, arson, and gun play. There is an emergency surgery on a dining room table, stolen snowmobiles, and hidden diaries as well as plenty of suspense to propel even a reluctant reader, and a number of false turns to keep the reader guessing. Although familiarity with the first two books in the series is helpful, it is not entirely necessary. Reviewer: Mary Ann Harlan
School Library Journal
Gr 8–10—With a blizzard raging around her, Chass trips over something in the snow and is horrified to discover the body of her music teacher. Through the whiteout, she sees a man wearing a hood and sunglasses staring at her. After 16 years on the run from the man who killed Chass's father, her mom takes no chances and prepares to leave town. Determined to solve the mystery rather than move again, the teen begins to track down clues to what turns out to be several mysteries. In between being shot at, trapped in burning buildings, blindly groping through whiteouts, and avoiding wolf attacks, Chass pieces together the evidence and closes in on solutions while the killer is closing in on her. The plot winds through a number of turns and red herrings, and the thriller aspects are appropriately tense and briskly paced. The one disappointment is in the setting: Chass and her friends spend the majority of the day walking around town in whiteout conditions and subfreezing temperatures, but there is no palpable sense of the cold or the isolation that a whiteout should bring. This is a minor flaw in an otherwise enjoyable page-turner. While there are some gaps to Chass's personal history, Sorrells provides sufficient bullet points in this third installment in the series to familiarize new readers with the overall premise.—Brandy Danner, Wilmington Memorial Library, MA

    Beat Series Ever

    I love the Hunted series Every time I finish one book, I want another. This story seemed different from the other two. This one seemed slower but yet somehow better. Every time I wanted to put it down because I thought I knew everything, so I kept reading; the further I got in the book the more I realized that I didn't know who did it or for that fact what was going on and why they did it. My motives were all wrong and so were my killers. I loved the fact that Walter Sorrels set this book in a different environment. People you thought were good were bad and people you thought were bad were good. It always kept you on the edge of your seat guessing who did it and why. In the end I was amazed to find out who did it. I was also glad that I didn't stop reading.


    P.S. (To choose who have never read the series): This is the third book. You don't have to read them in order to understand what is going on but it's always better to start from the begging.
