Starred Review from Kirkus

March 27, 2018

“The beautifully creepy plot deftly weaves together old-time-y fears with fresh outlooks through richly realized characters who feel immediate and modern despite the 1952 setting. Especially well done is the approach to gender, as Chance, Penny, and Constance all struggle with different realities of embodiment and expression without resorting to cheap sentiment or heavy-handedness. An excellent melding of horror and heart, this complex story will appeal to a wide range of readers.”
