About the Author

A. B. Poranek grew up in Canada but spent her summers in the Polish countryside, reading under apple trees and helping care for her grandfather's chickens. Her love of animals led her to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine, though she never stopped writing along the way. Her first novel, Where the Dark Stands Still, is an ode to Poland's wild woodlands, wilder folktales, and the girls who were raised by them.

Reviews

** "A beautifully written story of self-acceptance, sacrifice, and forgiveness. With echoes of Eastern European folklore, the fairy tale beats are immediately recognizable: a clever girl shunned from her community, a terrifying but possibly misunderstood monster, a bargain that brings them together in an enchanted wood. Poranek, like fantasy author Robin McKinley, elevates the familiar narrative through poetic symbolism, fully developed characters, and a skillful balance of darkness and whimsy."--BCCB, starred review
