Reviews
Battle Angel Alita meets The Hazel Wood in this sharp-as-nails urban fable that grabs you immediately with its hooked claw and refuses to let go. Jerreat-Poole's prose crackles and sings on the page as a woven spell, carefully cast.-- "S.M. Beiko, author of The Realms of Ancient trilogy"
Strange and riveting...The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass is an appealing and spooky fantasy.-- "Foreword Reviews"
A unique, gripping, engaging book by a voice that the genre has been waiting for. The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass is worth your time and your attention.-- "Seanan McGuire, award-winning author of the Wayward Children series"
...the tight plotting and myriad details will carry teens along on an imaginative adventure.-- "School Library Journal"
Imaginative... inventive worldbuilding and intriguing characters complement the fantastical setting.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Contrasting worlds of chaos and fear, power and struggle. Their characters are complicated, not only because of their fantastical natures but also because of their personalities as reflected in their behaviours...-- "CanLit for Little Canadians"
A moving, lyrical debut. Fantasy readers will fall in love with Jerreat-Poole's sharp-tongued assassin and diverse, vividly rendered magical world.-- "Heather Fawcett, author of Even the Darkest Stars"
In the midst of this dark, murderous fantasy, debut author Jerreat-Poole explores complex themes of oppression, abuse, belonging, and identity. A raw and chaotic force of magic.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Explores the queer potential of witches to evoke themes of difference, chosen families, and becoming one's true self in worlds both magical and mundane... Jerreat-Poole's fantasy world is chaotic but voluminous, and readers who love the stuff of magic will find plenty to spark the imagination.-- "Quill & Quire"
In The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass, Jerreat-Poole creates worlds and characters that are simultaneously magical and infinitely human.-- "Tanya Boteju, author of Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens"
I cannot praise this book enough ... if you're looking for a case study on metaphors and evocative writing, or if you're interested in a unique and experimental text that deals with identity, individuality, and the driving motivation of all living things to survive and find their place in the world even if they have to carve that place for themselves.-- "Cloud Lake Literary"
