Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
I loved Dimple and Hidier is an amazing writer. The imagery and language is so beautiful. The characters are really strong too–I loved the way Dimple & Gwyn’s friendship changes throughout the book, and the fact that Dimple’s relationship with her family & Gwyn is almost as important if not just as important as the romance. Really smart stuff about gender and cultural identity and art and growing up.
