Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unlike anything else! This book is unlike anything I've ever read before! Each story is unique and enthralling, as is the style in which they're written. One of my favorites is Blue, about a lonely poetic girl named La and her elf-like friend who appears out of the closet one day to comfort her after her mother's untimely death. There's something for everyone in here: childhood innocence, stingy reality, poetic beauty,... all portrayed in vivid and beautiful detail. Whatever you're into, it's definitely worth checking out!
