"Tara Sands skillfully takes the characters beyond the mundane through her impressive ability to speak in many voices - supercilious, sarcastic, and sincere. While delivering nonstop action, she underscores the notion that strength and beauty of character are more than skin deep." (AudioFile)
"Van Draanen injects some weighty social commentary into the plot's clever suspense, creating well-rounded secondary characters while she develops Sammy into an intelligent, gutsy, flawed, and utterly likable heroine." (Booklist)
Sammy Keyes and the Hollywood Mummy is a fantastic thriller for children - my daughter recommends this book to any child who loves good mysteries. This book is a tense, edge of the seat kind of story - intact she insists it is one of the best books she's ever listened to.
