This reminded me of the great 1970's confessional teen novels (in a really good way)--inside these pages is a story of teen pregnancy, death-by-drug-addiction, first love, first kiss, first sex, abortion trauma, etc, all while trying to get into coll ...more

This is such a beautifully written book--hallucinatory imagery and really mind-blowing pen-technics. After all the angst and beauty though, the ending seemed a little pat (EVERYTHING was tied up with a neat little bow), but I enjoyed the ride so much ...more

A thoroughly absorbing and well-plotted sci-fi mystery. Great world-building, engaging characters and an interesting novum. I highly recommend it.

A dense, but ultimately fun mystery, set in an old hotel hosting a music conference for young prodigies. There's a cast of very interesting teenage characters, but also some terrific adult ones. The author does a great time evoking place and time, an ...more

Cute, unusual mystery with a cast of small town characters and a pack of delightful girls trying to cover up--and solve--a murder. I could guess who did it pretty easily, which detracted much from the joy of reading the mystery, but I have a feeling ...more

“The old folktales from Mexico often have the same beginning. "One day a man met the devil in the road," or "The devil came upon a man in the desert." This is not an old story, but I am here to tell you, I met the devil in an orchard in December. He offered me gold; he gave me pleasure; he fooled me twice and then he set me on fire.”
Elise Forier Edie, A Winter's Enchantment

“It's a big wide world, after all, and Mattawa, Washington, perched on the edge of it, is somewhere in between Nowhere and Nothing At All.”
Elise Forier Edie, A Winter's Enchantment

“There's some kind of really bad stuff going around, because we keep getting these calls. Devils in the trees, monsters walking among us, crap like that. Happy holidays, right?”
Elise Forier Edie, A Winter's Enchantment
