really liked it
Read in September, 2010

Great! Reminds me of my beloved Joan Aiken in terms of subject matter and style. I really liked the story 'How and When,' which plays with time, and 'Pretending,' which was decidedly creepy. It's nice to read YA horror that isn't condescending or obviously trying too hard. But the reason it didn't get five stars from me is I kind of think Velde could have, um, tried a bit harder. Scarier or more serious stuff from this author wouldn't be unwelcome.
