Editorial Reviews

"Though the quirky (and highly memorable) characters and remote setting provide ample opportunities for humor, Horvath skillfully balances the story's light and dark moments, leaving readers with an ending both satisfying and honest." - Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW"Dashes of serious reflection on fear, love, and the unfairness that life doles out are seamlessly interwoven and add depth to the narrative....Excellent fun surrounds nuggets of wisdom, making for a great read or read-aloud to be enjoyed on multiple levels." - School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW"Ever respectful of the capacity of her audience to comprehend the big words and concepts she deals in, the author delivers a gothic tragicomedy that is both a worthy sequel and as able as Primrose to stand on its own." - Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
