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 luuurrrrrved Cushman’s recent Alchemy of Meggy Swann, so I was hoping that Will Sparrow would be just as awesome. I have to admit, I didn’t connect with it as much–Will stays a mostly unlikeable character in a way that Meggy doesn’t. I do also remember being very tired when I read this, so my reaction may not be entirely fair. But still, I think I will re-read Meggy and I’m not sure I’ll try to re-read Will.
