School Library Journal
Kaye draws her readers in from the get-go, satisfying them in each book, but leaving them wanting more. Strong female characters take the lead in each title, but the author also brings in perspectives of the other “gifted” students throughout. Both selections are fast paced and entangling, giving them wide appeal, particularly for reluctant readers.
Kaye (Penelope) uses her trademark mix of clever plotting and edgy humor to skewer the middle-grade mafia. No one is safe. . . . [T]he author's wit keeps readers turning these pages.
Bodysnatching and loss of control are great metaphors for adolescent life changes, and Kaye ably explores these changes of identity. . . .
