(STAR) "While this is at its heart a well-researched, fast-paced, survivor story, it is also a coming-of-age tale with surprising vulnerability and depth. The feeling of living in a sibling's shadow will resonate with many readers, while the messages of tenacity and strength are inspirational. An online game and connections to other Survivor Diaries combine with its easy-reading type and fast, straightforward plot to make this an ideal story for transitioning readers."–Kirkus, starred review

"The inspiring messages, real-life advice, and glimpses at future career opportunities will make this a crowd pleaser." –School Library Journal
