REVIEWS

Praise for Into the Trap

"What sets the novel apart from similar offerings is the tidy compression of events into a precise twenty-six hour and twelve minute time frame, and the contrast between plainspoken, assertive Eddie and formally eloquent, game but bumbling Briggs.” --BCCB

"...an action-packed tale with boat chases that may appeal to some boys." --SLJ
