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.

The Jumbies

The Jumbies - Tracey Baptiste

A really lovely middle grade fantasy, based on Haitian folklore. I loved the way Baptiste examines the intricacies of family, without leaving any easy conclusions. Corinne is a great protagonist, who makes mistakes but also cares about her father and her friends.
