"A fast-paced, high-interest read...What is great about this book is its relevant subject matter to which many kids can relate. Lindy comes across as a natural character who experiences the same things everyone else does: the extreme excitement over a trip, the gut-wrenching guilt over taking advantage of someone and the fear and anxiety that come with being bullied. These experiences and emotions all occur quickly as the book is a short read, but that doesn’t make the emotions any less real...The plot progresses very quickly which, in turn, makes the book a gripping and fast-paced read that is sure to hold the attention of readers." - CM Magazine
"Dakers explores several moral issues including elder abuse, theft and bullying...Readers will learn that 'doing the right thing' is not always easy!" - Resource Links
"This story has a plotline that many young adults can relate to as issues of honesty and true friendship emerge...An easy read which should appeal to reluctant readers and other teen readers. Recommended." - School Library Connection
