"Winters' descriptions of Scott's thoughts as he races down a track realistically convey the excitement and adrenaline rush a biker feels during a competition. Her rapid fire description of what it's like to ride a bike at 160 mph and her enthusiastic articulation of motorcycle mechanics should have teen boys (however reluctant the reader) tearing through the pages of the novel and Googling videos of the infamous Isle of Man TT, statistically the most dangerous motorcycle race in the world. In TT Full Throttle, Winters has successfully delivered an action-packed young adult novel without skimping on character development . . . and without the teen angst."

"I wasnt prepared for the depth of the character building that Nicole Winters achieved in the 260 pages of her book. If you love bikes, buy this book. If you dont love bikes, buy this book anyway. In addition to actually creating a realistic presentation of what it means to race a motorcycle to its edge and beyond, more importantly -- this book showcases the people who do it, and how they cope with personal tragedy, victory and pain -- and the balance of risk, even in the midst of love."
