Reviews

Praise for The Knowing
* "Both a politically charged adventure and culture study, this thought-provoking dystopia stands firmly on its own." -- Booklist, starred review
"Diverse, well-drawn characters abound, but in the riveting power struggles that ensue, women are dominant players, ruthless ideologues willing to sacrifice all that interferes with the goal. The intricately woven narrative threads come together in a suspenseful denouement sure to leave readers hoping for another installment." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Wildly inventive yet somehow believable. . . . For all of its fantastical elements . . . this companion novel is ultimately a story about two teenagers, Samara and Beckett, finding their places in the world, managing familial and societal expectations, and falling in love. Cameron is a writer of prime caliber." -- School Library Journal
Praise for The Forgetting
A #1 New York Times bestseller
An Autumn 2016 Kids' Indie Next List selection
* "Effective worldbuilding and strong characterization . . . A well-crafted fable for our time." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "This fantasy is a marvelous achievement." -- School Library Journal, starred review
"[An] absorbing adventure." -- Publishers Weekly
"The Forgetting is Sharon Cameron's fourth young adult novel, and she's grown adept at blurring the lines between fantasy, dystopian and science-fiction genres. Cameron reminds us, through Nadia's documented memories, that we must learn to appreciate the truth as much as question it, exploring the morality tucked within the fallacy of memory." -- Bookpage, Top Pick

"Full of derring-do and double crosses, this romantic adventure is thoroughly engrossing." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Cameron crafts a brilliant homage to The Scarlet Pimpernel yet also manages to make her telling unique, particularly in... the many twists, turns, betrayals, and lucky breaks [that] will keep readers breathless until the very end." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Rook is sure to be a read all readers will remember." -- Portland Book Review
