On The Head of a Pin by Mary Beth Miller
Booklist, Starred Review: "What begins as a story about an accident . . . develops into a carefully crafted, complex character study of young men reacting to the horrifying events of a single evening. . . . Miller . . . has written . . . a through-provoking and disturbingly real scenario."
Publisher's Weekly: "Miller's (Aimee) riveting novel could come right out of newspaper headlines . . . [T]he author delves deep into the psyches of . . . two sensitive and vulnerable boys."
School Library Journal: "[A] gripping and suspenseful story . . . [Miller's] beautifully rendered narrators . . . compel the reader on to the last page."
Kliatt: "This is a book that asks big questions . . . All of these questions turn on the head of a pin. One message is implicit: young people need adults in their lives."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books: "[An} intricate story . . . laced with themes of religion and suffering, adding depth to an already complex tale. . . . [A] riveting psychological thriller . . . readers will undoubtedly find themselves swept up in . . . this page turner."
Teen Book Diva: "Dark and haunting."
