Reviews: 

“Lesperance has crafted a wonderfully original world… The delightfully descriptive text sets a cozy scene, but there is also real danger and a deliciously disconcerting villain. There is magic and mayhem, horror and hope, and the thread of family and friendship weaving it all together.” – Booklist, starred review

“Lesperance crafts a resourceful heroine whose loyalty forces her to confront a difficult situation and come out stronger. She also folds a satisfying sense of wonder into the quaint town, balanced with a chilling element of darkness.” – Publishers Weekly

“A hair-raising, nontraditional horror novel with fantastical elements. Will have universal appeal for children who don’t mind a scare.” – School Library Journal

“A spine-tingling adventure.” – Kirkus Reviews
