it was amazing
Read from August 30 to September 06, 2012

Claire Legrand's debut is as astonishingly well written as it is quirky, dark, and endearing. The character of Victoria struggled with making her outside match her insides, and her growing friendship with Lawrence hit all the right, tearjerking notes. The fantastic characters are set inside a world creepy enough to thrill Tim Burton, with Mrs. Cavendish and the Home waiting with surprises around every corner. This is a home run of a middle grade novel, once I can't imagine disappointing readers of that age - or any age. Such a weird, fun time.
