You know something? I honestly can't think of anything I didn't like about Shelter. From the dialogue to the emotions expressed by Mickey, from the investigation to the hint of a massive conspiracy - it was all superb. And man! That cliffhanger! It feels a long, long time to the next novel in the series. This is sharp, dangerous, funny and, above all, vital reading. It is a masterpiece of a thriller story for Young Adults. Buy Shelter immediately, you won't regret it. FLOOR TO CEILING BOOKS It's a cracking read - I'm a bit of a sucker for noir set in the high school environment... A great place for younger readers to discover the wonderful suburban crime dramas of Mr Coben and, for those who know what to expect, another great read to add to their growing collection. Can't wait for the next one in the Mickey Bolitar series. High scoring stuff indeed. BOOKS AND WRITERS the ending is spine-tingling and shocking, which bodes well for the next book! Shelter is a gripping little thriller than should be bought and read as soon as possible, regardless of the reader's age. Superb. ALTERNATIVE MAGAZINE ONLINE Shelter is a cleverly plotted mystery that leaves you wanting more. I read it in one sitting.
