For a while now, even before it was published, I’ve been curious as to how kids would respond to Danger Peak. Even though it’s ostensibly a middle-grade/young-adult book (and the subtitle even reads “A Kid Adventure”), it takes place in the 1980s, decades before the target audience was even born. All of my reviews so far have been from adults, and although they were positive (mostly!), I still wondered what kids might think, since many of them have never even heard of the shows “Miami Vice” or “Knight Rider,” just two of the many ‘80s-centric references in my book. This week I finally received an answer with my first professional review from a kid, courtesy of the good folks at the website Reader Views, and it’s a perfect score. Similar to the website Literary Titan, Danger Peak received five out of five stars. To read the full review, click on the link below or simply read an excerpt following the link.

The author writes well, with very descriptive sentences that really bring out the drama. …Danger Peak is a thrilling and perilous book with a lot of excitement and the perfect book for someone looking for a very dangerous ride of a book!—Reader Views
