Praise For The Trap…
—School Library Journal
* "This riveting science-fiction mystery is much more than an exciting read...An amazing blend of mystery, romance, science fiction and social commentary."
—Kirkus, starred review
"The story deals with issues of friendship, mystery, and school crushes [and] should appeal to fans of science fiction and fantasy."
* "Henry's introspective, self-effacing narration brims with evocative details and descriptions...unspooling a haunting and suspenseful story that will resonate with science-fiction fans as well as anyone who has needed to find the courage to ask a date to the big dance."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Aptly named, The Trap is a deceptively breezy, fast-paced mystery with an engaging kid narrator. Arntson weaves classic sci-fi elements into a fresh, fantastical story ideal for middle grades on up."
"This novel is a strong choice for readers new to science fiction who appreciate the power of storytelling to change the world."
