"This is great science fiction. It's fun to read and thought-provoking at the same time."--School Library Journal
"Shusterman tells a fast-paced story, giving Jason many vivid, original turns of phrase, letting the plot get weird enough to keep readers enthralled, then coming back to the human emotions at the heart of it all."--Booklist
