Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] richly imagined setting…This one is a winner.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Teen readers will devour this romp set in a fantastical Wild West-style world, filled with a diverse cast of strong female leads.” School Library Journal
“The gunslinging, hard-riding action of a classic Western is balanced against heavy but effective commentary on class and gender to make a story that is by turns heart pounding and thought-provoking.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
