"In this lively fantasy, Fawcett (The Language of Ghosts) plays with familiar tropes (magical schools, chosen ones), centering a female protagonist, a fresh take on heroics, and a clearly built world layered with history and an interesting magical system." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Fans of other boy wizards will be mesmerized by this original addition to the genre, and humor-loving readers will revel in the Diana Wynne Jones-style snark that's interjected throughout. Themes of class, education, and equality are interwoven seamlessly, providing additional food for thought. A magical addition to any bookshelf." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A vividly realized adventure set in an imaginative fantasy world." -- Booklist

"This familiar-yet-original fantasy hits all its marks." -- Horn Book Magazine

"A wonderfully imaginative story filled with an enticing array of magical creatures, The School Between Winter and Fairyland celebrates the abiding bond of siblings, the many kinds of heroism, and the revolutionary power of empathy. This book is a delight." -- Anne Ursu, award-winning author of Breadcrumbs and The Lost Girl

"I tore through The School Between Winter and Fairyland faster than a wyvern claws through hearts. An exhilarating, witty, brilliant twist on a classic Chosen One story. With magic and monsters and adventure abound, attending Inglenook is a MUST." -- Lauren Magaziner, author of the Case Closed series

"An adventure with monsters, magic, and mysterious prophecies! You won't want to put it down!" -- Jessica Day George, NYT bestselling author of the TUESDAYS AT THE CASTLE series
