3 S.R. Johannes: Praise



"This thrilling story is a dramatic entanglement of mystery, deception and teen romance.  The action flows like a brisk mountain stream interspersed with rapids, holding suspense to last page."- Kirkus Review 

"Johannes has done a marvelous job of creating a suspense-filled mystery with surprises that keep you guessing all the way to the end. Untraceable is a thoroughly engrossing and riveting page-turner." - IndieReader

"A Modern Day Katniss..." - Reel Life with Jane

"This story is action-packed and very funny in some parts. There is even a bit of young romance...There is a strong message of wildlife conservation, so it is somewhat educational in that aspect." Molly Burkemper for "Readers Favorite"

"Grace is a spunky, independent, nature girl who doesn't need a boy to save her. With wilderness survival, a juicy love triangle, and more twists and turns than a roller coaster, this fast-paced novel had me holding my breath until the very last page!" - Kimberly Derting (author of popular series: The Body Finder, The Pledge, The Taking) 

Amazon Breakthrough Novel Quarterfinalist  - Judge Reviews:

"This story starts out with a bang...and had the ring of a young person's style and intensity. Authentic representation of ...action. Original in premise and style, and good use of background...Good story!" - Sue Grafton, author of bestselling Kinsey Milhone series

"This murder mystery features a teenaged heroine... The prose is very descriptive...and the dialogue is genuine. The setting of small town ...and surrounding woods is appealing. The story moves along at a brisk clip..."- Sue Monk Kidd, author of Secret Life of Bees
