"The theme--"If you feel you don't fit somewhere, change it until it fits you"--is movingly portrayed."-- "Publishers Weekly"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Richly imagined world, a fantastic reshaping of Slavic folklore. . .shows the universal loss of beauty and magic when power is mishandled, through an unassuming heroine who spectacularly charts her own path." -- "Booklist"
"This suspenseful fantasy adventure has an engaging hero's journey plot and important messages related to female empowerment and mentorship." -- "School Library Journal"
"Slavic folklore is woven throughout this inventive and wholly engrossing fantasy, giving it a rich history of magic and lore from which to draw. As Olga learns to embrace her hidden yaga talents, she also grows to celebrate what makes her unique. A story of intense bravery with a stalwart heroine."-- "The Horn Book Magazine"
