What the reviewers are saying:
"De Alcantara’s obvious love for New York is infectious, especially for history buffs, and his ability to fashion gritty realism within a fantastical plot sets this thriller apart."
"The pace is quick, the Big Apple landmarks will be familiar to many, and the history, while necessarily condensed, comes alive. A fun, exciting story."
— School Library Journal
"Pedro de Alcantara creates a heartwarming story of loss and self discovery. . . . Readers will find themselves fascinated with de Alcantara’s use of true historical events and his obvious adoration for New York. Overall, this is a fantastic read for young and old alike."
