Reviews

"Ursu ends this passionate and complex story with a celebration of sibling autonomy, youthful agency and the power of friends."--New York Times Book Review
β˜…"National Book Award nominee Ursu laces her story with fairy-tale elements and real-life monsters, while taking great care to cast girls in an empowering light and as authors (and heroes) of their own stories. It is a layered, mysterious tale that will speak to many."--ALA Booklist (starred review)
β˜…"As intriguing as it is eerie... This suspenseful mystery offers a story of empowerment, showing how one girl with the help of others can triumph."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
β˜…"The sense of adventure and mystery make this appealing to a wide audience. A beautiful, timeless tale of love conquering darkness in the midst of mystery and the angst of change. A must-have for any middle grade collection."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Ursu unleashes a sharp, timely, age-appropriate critique of the myriad ways in which patriarchal culture devalues female agency, especially that of young girls. The novel finely balances the importance of self-reliance with the power of collective action."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Ursu's fans will find much to love."--Kirkus Reviews
"A magical story of sisterly love and loss and friendship."--Tulsa Book Review
