Editorial Reviews
Review
"Like Alice after tumbling down the rabbit hole, Asta takes us on a journey through a confounding world filled with remarkable characters. A compassionate tale mixed with hope and sorrow, Asta In the Wings evokes both the tenderness and the danger of one child's struggle to find a place for herself in a world she is only beginning to understand. It's a gem of a book."

Mind of Winter by Laura Kasischke
"Mind of Winter is one of those tricky novels in which to share anything about the plot would be to establish expectations or create a hyper-awareness in future readers that will diminish one’s enjoyment of this spooky thriller. To truly enjoy it and " Read more of this review »
