PRAISE FOR THE MURK
ONE OF SAN FRANCISCO BOOK REVIEW'S TOP 20 BACK TO SCHOOL READS
"This is a wonderful story about bravery, perseverance, and the meaning of true friendship." ~ San Francisco Book Review
"...an action-heavy book with plenty of chills and appealingly gruesome details...Give to the kids who have outgrown Goosebumps and are ready for something with more of a bite." ~ Booklist
"Exciting horror-lite with vivid, stimulating language and deliberate plotting." ~ Horn Book Guide
"Fans of “Goosebumps” looking for something with a little bit more substance will enjoy this action-packed adventure filled with plenty of fun and a few scares...The Murk is an excellent action adventure that will have readers burning the midnight oil to finish...The Okefenokee swamp setting is so well written that it becomes an additional character—a dangerous character with something up its sleeve at all times...The plot moves fast enough to keep pages turning while leaving just enough room to develop character...A good choice for readers who like action, adventure, and horror."
~ School Library Journal
"...so utterly odd that I want someone else to read it so its weirdness can be fully appreciated."
