Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The poetic quality of the prose brings hope and an almost unshakable compulsion.” New York Times
“Barnhill’s nimble prose make this a winning choice for before-bedtime read-alouds.” Publishers Weekly
“Barnhill does a fine job of keeping readers’ attention with a likable hero and heroine, a well-paced plot, and a daunting villain.” Booklist
“Violet’s realm is richly imagined; mirror-related imagery is effectively employed throughout, encouraging readers to reflect upon the importance of exterior appearances and the many ways that truth can be refracted.” School Library Journal
