"I enjoyed this book from start to finish because it was very realistic . . . . I thank the author for making the first person a "gothic/own personality" character. There are many books that mention these kind of characters . . . but never puts them in the spotlight. (It was) a memorable story." Reviewed by Haejin, Jamestown Middle School
"This book really stirred up my emotions. I was able to feel Matt's battles with herself, bullies, and her past. She wanted to stay invisible . . . The anti-war element in the book adds to its eloquence." Reviewed by Nadia, Southeast High School
"This story was really touching. I think everyone can feel a connection to Matt - the outsider, the different one. . . . (It) had me in tears a few times, the pain was so realistic." Reviewed by Adrienne, Southeast High School

"The book was suspenseful; it made me want to keep on reading. I didn't want the book to end! I love how the author provides prospectives from both Magpie and Talon. The two faeries seem to be a good match for each other. The descriptions in the book were very vivid." Reviewed by Nadia, Southeast High School

"This was an excellent book. Even though it is a work of fiction I know that certain events in the book do occur in real life. I wish that the ending had said more. Maybe there could be a sequel that describes how Alonzo worked to become a doctor and then he goes back for Rosa. I do recommend this book to other readers."

"This story was a little shocking to me. It really portrayed both sides of rebellion, without sugarcoating the cruelity and pain that it cost the citizens of Mexico. I was sad while reading this book, but that just made me realize how well-written it was. I think this should be required reading for all of America."
