"There’s plenty of intrigue, drama, mystery and excitement. I love Karlik’s writing style. It’s simple and easy to read, but definitely not lackluster. I could easily picture myself as a character in the story piecing together clues to uncover the truth behind the mysterious death of Cassidy Jones. And I loved it."
“Hickville Redemption is a really well done, engaging young adult romance with a mystery thrown in and I devoured it happily.”
–Veronica, Wicked Reads
“What I loved about this book so much is that it goes to lengths to show that teens like anyone make mistakes, ones that will change them as people and responsible adults for the future.”
