By Singing Light

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 Piper's Son - Melina Marchetta I love Marchetta, as you may have gathered by my Jellicoe Road posts. The Piper’s Son follows Tom Mackee, from Saving Francesca. While quite a bit of contemporary realistic fiction drives me crazy, Marchetta always manages to make me really care about characters with whom I have nothing in common. Jellicoe Road is still my favorite by far–I love Taylor so much–but Tom’s story is another heart-wrenching one, told in a lovely way. [March 2011]
