I absolutely love Gidwitz's wild imagination and his use of hilarious, intrusive narrator. I highly recommend this book to anyone studying the use of voice in fiction. I also admire the way Gidwitz interweaves the story and really fully reimagines th ...more

I’m not sure I would call this “poetry,” more like prose with line break. But—as a novel—it is riveting. Exposes the gut-wrenching difficulty of loving two people in conflict, and not knowing whom to believe.

Sophisticated yet playful poetry for a young audience. I was amazed at the wordplay and use of poetic elements. Each poem was a little gem, perfect for young readers. The illustrations were beautiful.

I can’t believe I’ve never read this before. A classic of the genre, it took less than an hour to read. I was blown away by the size of this novel—not only the short, spare prose, but also the tiny—yet engrossing—scope of the conflict.

Absolutely stunning use of voice and imagery. If you are interested in #voice, this is the book to study.
Most interesting to me was the secret buried at the heart of the novel—one I didn’t even realize was there until I reached the end. Fascinating

From the amazing mind who brought readers Siren’s Storm, this sequel will keep you reading until the very last page has been turned. Not to mention…there is a serious twist in this one that you will NOT see coming.

“She swore vengeance on all men with dark hearts.”
Lisa Papademetriou, Siren's Storm

“People make mistakes; they do the wrong things. Sometimes they're annoying. Sometimes they're awful. (That's true for me, too, by the way.)
So how do you know when it's time to give up? And do you know when to hang in there? I guess you don't really. You just make your choices and hope for the best.”
Lisa Papademetriou, Taking the Cake!

“It's always best to avoid strangling the person you're on a date with. No matter how crazy he makes you.”
Lisa Papademetriou, Accidentally Friends

Lisa Papademetriou Thanks, Sam! What a kind comment! That book is actually a parody of a lot of other fantasy novels, including the Lord of the Rings, the Chronicles of Narnia, and more. Enjoy exploring the genre!
