“With her second book for middle readers, following Liesl & Po, Oliver has another hit on her hands. When Liza's brother Patrick has his soul stolen by spider-like spindlers, and her overburdened mother dismisses everything she says as a child's fantasy, Liza takes it upon herself to travel Below to save Patrick and ends up embarking on a journey of self-discovery that will speak to anyone who's ever had 'childish fantasies.'”
— Melissa Oates, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC
