"...a fast-paced mystery that will be sure to hook young readers... Goldman writes with economy and spunk... The high-octane plot moves along through authentic kid dialogue...This book, which should appeal to both boy and girls and especially to reluctant readers, is highly recommended." --Hillary Homzie, Author, Alien Clones from Outer Space series "Jewish tweens and teens who enjoyed the Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling may find themselves charmed." -- San Diego Jewish World "Jordan's preteen first-person narration drives debut author Goldman's intriguing take on Jewish mythology, which is still not very common in youth fiction. It should interest younger children who enjoy a good magical adventure with real mythology behind it." -- Booklist Online
