“Smart, witty and utterly terrifying, EchoStar reminds us to always question what (and who) we let into our lives” – Simon James Green "Perfectly creepy and filled with thriller-like tension. I loved that it felt so real and will really resonate with young people today! A great villain and a wonderfully naive protagonist!" – NetGalley review "Melinda Salisbury just has a way of writing that's always sure to suck me in. Echostar is always listening, is CREEPY … Think Black Mirror and get ready to spend the rest of your week staring at your phone with mistrust … You are sure to be hooked and locked into this emotional rollercoaster."
