MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume is an excellent choice for British literature students looking for contemporary novels to critique as well as high-quality reading for mature YAs. * School Library Journal, April 2007 *
Greenway's treatment of Chambers's fictional work is thorough and insightful....the book provides a thoroughly researched and well-balanced discussion of the six novels that make up Chambers's "Dance Sequence."...The experience of reading this volume leaves the reader with a sense that Chambers's work and life make a coherent whole (not to mention an inspiring story). I recommend this book not only to anyone with an interest in Aidan Chambers's work but also to those more generally interested in contemporary young adult fiction. * Children's Literature Association Quarterly, Vol. 32, No. 1 (Spring 2007) *
In addition to serving as a resource for teachers and librarians, this book would be a good addition to junior and senior high school libraries, particularly if students are given research assignments on the author. * VOYA, February 2007 *
