“Fresh, funny and surprising. The sibling dynamics--alternately testy and touching--are believable, as are the wonderfully odd characters....A quirky charmer.” --Kirkus, starred review
“Metafictional flourishes keep us amused and on our toes as Potter tackles some serious topics from a position both gothic-cheeky and compassionate.” --Horn Book Magazine
And, in a poignant haiku from one blogger:
Yes, it really is
that good. Voice, character, and plot --
it's got them all.
