Reviews

Stonewall Honor Winner

★ "The unpredictability of curses, magic, and love are inexorably entwined in this gracefully written story." --Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Part ghost story, part love story, this page-turner is a captivating exploration of the power of place, family, memory, and time itself." --Kirkus Reviews

"Barzak expertly balances magical realism, historical flashbacks, and contemporary teen romance in Aidan's journey of self-discovery." --Booklist

"The complexity of the pairing of real and the unreal . . . is striking, and rather haunting." --Tor.com

"A wonder itself--a coming-of-age, coming-out, and crossing-into-the-mystic novel all rolled into one." --Tom McNeal, National Book Award finalist for Far Far Away

"Brilliant storytelling that unearths new intersections of love and magic." --Scott Westerfeld, bestselling author of Uglies and Zeroes

"If you don't want a book with magic, mystery, lying parents, ancient curses, and true, true love (plus wonderful writing), then I'm not sure I care to know you. But if you do, then Wonders of the Invisible World is the book you've been waiting for." --Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
