From Publishers Weekly:

Lauren, 17, is worried about her friend Janaan, whose baby brother apparently died of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Ever since the baby died, Janaan has had even more that her usual share of trouble with her strict father, and she doesn't want Lauren's help or advice. Then comes the awful day when Lauren and Janaan are babysitting together and another baby dies, also apparently of crib death. The police suspect that Janaan has murdered at least two babies, maybe more. Only Lauren believes in her friend's innocence. Then the police discover that the babies' bodies have disappeared from their graves, and Lauren realizes that only she and Janaan can solve the mystery. This fast-paced story calls to mind Eve Bunting's novels. The suspenseful build-up of events compensates for the mystery's fairly implausible resolution. Ages 12-up.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10-- Two teenagers' lives change when one is accused of murdering three infants, including her own brother. Ferguson sustains suspense throughout her first novel, as the girls try to prove Janaan's innocence in the face of mounting circumstantial evidence. The unusual conclusion, involving voodoo, greed, and baby selling, is chilling yet believable. Subordinate to the mystery are well-developed sub-plots involving difficulties in Janaan and Lauren's friendship, and Janaan's reactions to the restrictions placed on her by her old-world Arab father. While some readers may question police suspicion of Janaan, particularly when she barely held one of the infants, they will soon be caught up in the terrifying crisis that surrounds her. --David Gale, "School Library Journal"
