November 2012 Indie Next List
“This is a wonderful retelling of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story. When Ms. Clevis suddenly splits apart into two different personalities, it's up to the kids in her sixth grade science class to put her back together again. This is a fun and slightly creepy new series that should have kids on the edge of their seats.”
— Janice Hunsche, Kaleidosaurus Books, Fishers, IN
