"A hair-raising, nontraditional horror novel with fantastical elements. Will have universal appeal for children who don't mind a scare.

" -- School Library Journal

"A spine-tingling adventure." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Lesperance has crafted a wonderfully original world... The delightfully descriptive text sets a cozy scene, but there is also real danger and a deliciously disconcerting villain. There is magic and mayhem, horror and hope, and the thread of family and friendship weaving it all together." -- Booklist, STARRED Review
"[An] absorbing tale... Maren is a memorably flawed and earnest protagonist." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Lesperance crafts a resourceful heroine whose loyalty forces her to confront a difficult situation and come out stronger. She also folds a satisfying sense of wonder into the quaint town, balanced with a chilling element of darkness." -- Publishers Weekly
"Readers who loved Astrid Law's Savvy series or Shelby Bach's The Ever Afters series will surely love Maren and her dreams to save the world." -- Rebecca Williams, The Portland Book Review
"This poignant story blending fantasy and horror takes place in a colorful setting, a town where magic is part of the reality." -- Jean Westmoore, The Buffalo News
