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.

Golden Girl

Golden Girl - Sarah Zettel

Golden Girl by Sarah Zettel: Second in the American Fairies trilogy, this book follows Callie and Jack as they make their way to Hollywood. I liked this one a lot, although the cover is quite misleading–Callie and Jack aren’t in a glamorous situation at all. They’re working, not acting, and the people around them aren’t who they seem. I called one twist, but I could also understand why the characters didn’t see it, so it was more an awareness-of-the-shape-of-narrative thing than a too obvious thing.
