The story [of "Scarface"] has a complicated and suspense-filled plot. The action is fast and the characterization is excellent. The historical background is accurate. All combine to produce a top-notch story. One of the tests of a good junior novel is the difficulty the youngsters have in getting the book away from their dads. This one should produce a genuine tug-of-war—it is that good. (p. 4)
