[Are You in the House Alone? is] a sensitive, tasteful and realistic novel for young adults on rape. Gail Osborne is a true-to-life teenager…. In the end, no one ends up with the same old friends; loyalties—if they ever really existed—change and Gail emerges knowing herself and the real world a lot more thoroughly. The reader emerges with helpless yet outraged questions about what can be done to handle rape…. Highly recommended for purchase by all young adult collections and for inclusion in the Best Books for YA's List. (pp. 89-90)
