"Be warned: If you open this novel, you're going to be sucked into it until the very last page. Author Lisa McMann presents Janie Hannagan's strange world in a vivid and compelling story of dazzling originality. Janie Hannagan is a tremendously sympathetic character, an ordinary girl with an extraordinary problem that she handles with resilience and grit. Her romance with Cabel Strumheller, himself a mystery, adds several delightful twists. A terrific read for teens and adults alike."
Richard Lewis, author of The Flame Tree, The Killing Sea, and The Demon Queen (forthcoming).
