“Although the story is told from Justine’s perspective, her four classmates are equally complex and interesting, with deep personal conflicts. Castle succeeds in providing suspense and drama as each character’s emotional baggage is unpacked on and off the screen.”
"With its implicit commentary on today’s reality-show culture, this provocative novel explores what makes observing strangers fumbling through life so addictively entertaining—and so eye-opening, too."
--The Horn Book
