Adolescent readers in Grades 8 through 11 will appreciate the regard Goobie pays to threats and power struggles so subtle they might appear absurd to many adults. . ."This quietly powerful novel may help to play a role in eradicating one of the most pressing social issues facing adolescents."Highly Recommended.-- "CM Magazine""Once again, author Beth Goobie provides pre-teen and teen readers with a compelling story about bullying that features many positive female role models. Meredith's journey of self-discovery is met with an unsatisfying but realistic ending and makes her aware that things are often more complicated than they seem. The Throne is an enjoyable recreational read."-- "Canadian Children's Book News"
