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 was really blown away by this book, and I wish I had it together enough to talk about it at greater length. Stead weaves together two connected narratives that are really powerful. The themes of friendship and growing up are treated gracefully, and I think this is a really valuable addition to middle grade fiction.
