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.

This book feels like a warm hug. It’s beautiful, it’s sweet, and it made me smile. Just the book for when I was feeling like I needed some seam repairs and fresh stuffing myself.

A tangled story of dark folklore, wobbly truths, and girl power. The release date for this title was pushed way back, and I have been so excited to recommend it for months. The time is finally here!

Author Strong doesn't shy away from racial violence in this MG story, and she slams it out of the park. It's a chilling ghost story wrapped in an endearing tale of family and friendship. For kids who may not like reading non-fiction, this could be a good bridge towards discussions of White violence against Black bodies. Also all of the characters are just so adorable!
