Horn Book Review

In alternating narration, we meet thirteen-year-olds Audrey, who can tell when someone's lying, and Aaron, who remembers everything he's ever seen or heard in perfect detail. Because these "superpowers" impede their social lives, they're sent to wilderness camp to gain balance. With a quick pace and acerbic protagonists to draw readers in, what follows is a story of survival and unlikely friendship. (c) Copyright 2016.
