Published: Penguin Books - May 5th, 2020

After we lost my dad, this was the first book I could actually read and finish. The main character resonated with me and felt so human. Though the subject matter is difficult (and somewhat taboo), the author approaches it with a tender hand and a courageous heart. I owe her a debt of gratitude for helping to anchor me when all I could do was float. CW: Suicide, mental illness

I found this to be the book equivalent of being wrapped in a warm blanket. Wintery woods, cozy cottages, warm beverages, loving friends and family. Sprinkled with fairy tales that may be more than they seem. A great, heartwarming adventure featuring a strong, brave girl on a quest to find herself.

Phenomenal. I didn't think this pair of creators could outdo their previous book Lost Words, but they have. The illustrations are so beautiful; it feels like you could fall into the scenes. The poetry is fun, and haunting, and lyrical. Definitely the type of poetry that rumbles around in your head, so much so that you'll find yourself thinking of it time and time again. Unlike its predecessor, in a very travel-handy format!

A deep meditation on gender and society, but built in the framework of a rich fantasy universe (I really can't wait to read more now). Its at times somber feel meshed well with my current sense of existential melancholy. But really, there's so much in such a small book. Including some necromancy!

SO CUTE. Lots of ghoulies, skeletons, love, and adorable illustrations. Also there's a brief glimpse of a pumpkin headed bookseller who stole my heart.
