"[Olivia] Chadha's absorbing first novel depicts a family of first-generation immigrants in upstate New York encountering the difficulties of survival, assimilation and longing for home…It's a delightful intrigue, with strong characters who develop and grow throughout the book as they face frightening turns."
Blair Richmond's The Ghost Runner is "thoroughly entertaining." —Kirkus Reviews
