"Within a hundred pages or so, I realized that this was a real contender for World's 2014 Children's Book of the Year. Once they had a chance to read it, the committee agreed; our final vote was all but unanimous. Warden combines engaging characters, thrilling action, humor, and virtue in a cracking good story."
