it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, fantasy-fairytales
Read in May, 2012

As soon as I saw the cover and read the synopsis, I knew I would love this book. This is Ms. Ivey's first novel and she did an amazing job. The story moves right along at the right pace and sucks you in. Is it real or is it a fairytale? What makes Faina the way she is?

This story is so well-written. It felt a little like a grown-up's fairytale. I felt the cold of Alaska and saw the northern lights wriggling across the sky. Ivey's writing is fresh and beautiful, just like the people and wilderness she describes.
