About the Author

Samantha Mabry credits her tendency toward magical thinking to her Grandmother Garcia, who would wash money in the kitchen sink to rinse off any bad spirits. She teaches writing and Latino literature at a community college in Dallas, where she lives with her husband, a historian, and a cat named Mouse. She is the author of A Fierce and Subtle Poison and All the Wind in the World. Visit her online at or on Twitter: @samanthamabry.


Longlisted for the National Book Award for Young People's Literature
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books' 2017 Blue Ribbons List Winner

An Best Books of 2017: Teens & Young Adult
A 2017 Booklist Editors' Choice

A Cooperative Children's Book Center Choices 2018 selection

"Mabry's powerful descriptions haunt, and her sentences pierce."
--The Boston Globe

"Beautiful prose and sharply drawn characters."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"In aching, luminous prose, Mabry crafts a story impossible to forget, infused with southwestern folklore and magical realism . . . A gripping, fable-like story of a love ferocious enough to destroy and a world prepared to burn with it."
--Booklist, starred review

"Presents a fierce new world with high stakes, where complicated romantic relationships among various characters linger beyond the end of the book."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"The grit and dust can almost be felt on the pages through Mabry's evocative, searing prose; the increasing humiliation of the fieldhands and their hopelessness makes the tension nearly suffocating, and Old Testament allusions give the book a further sense of doom."
--Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books, starred review

"Walks dark and dances romantic . . . Mabry's pairing of natural environment and magic realism is striking and effective."
--The Center for Fiction: Junior Edition

"Mabry's second novel is a gracefully written, mysterious, sometime painful romance that will draw readers into the unique setting immediately."
--VOYA, starred review

"[An] evocative, dystopic fable."

"Mabry has established herself as a master of fabulist sleight of hand, and this sophomore effort won't disappoint."
--B&N Teen

"A vein of superstition courses through the tale, cut with stark realities, raw descriptions, and plenty of grit."
--Publishers Weekly

"The author's prose is rich and lyrical."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Mabry's lyrical writing sizzles with the same heat as the relentless desert sun. The setting of All the Wind in the World is refreshingly unique, but the main character's feelings of love and longing are universal. Remarkable."
--April Genevieve Tucholke, author of Wink Poppy Midnight
