A 2022 Chicago Public Library Best of the Best Books of the Year

"With captivating artwork and a compelling adventure that has surprising depth, this is a top pick for teen readers who liked Tillie Walden's On a Sunbeam." --Booklist, starred review

"There's a timelessness to this story as the weight of family secrets, the desire to change a life through wishes, and the magic of tapping one's own strengths are themes that echo backward and forward across humanity." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"A quick, immersive, and gorgeous read that's welcome on any graphic novel shelf." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Wyatt enlivens classic fantasy tropes and themes through the lens of a tenacious heroine whose rapidly expanding worldview and patchy memories of her complicated past build toward a poignant resolution through a compact, immersive narrative." --Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"Choo's manga-influenced cartooning is cinematic and immersive, expertly balancing long-distance establishing shots with up-close character-driven action." --Horn Books
