Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A spooky, atmospheric love letter to New York and its shifting moods, skylines and people. Sophia McDougall, author of the Romanitas trilogy.
“Emily Bauer’s narration of this contemporary ghost story is a poignant, pitch-perfect success…Bauer emphasizes Jenna’s earnest, honest humanity, making her isolation and vulnerability painfully clear, and tracing her growing self-assurance as she fights for her chance at redemption. Additionally, Bauer’s remarkable ability to shift between various Southern accents and intonations infuses the dialogue with emotional depth and insight, building empathy for each person in Jenna’s strange new world, and infusing this beautifully melancholy tale with defiant hope.” AudioFile
“McGuire’s latest novella is a breathtaking work, simultaneously exciting and emotionally resonant. Jenna is as real as she is unreal; she is endearing and magnetic even as she lacks corporeal form. Through her, the reader understands the nature of the world she inhabits, as well as the depths of her loneliness, even before Jenna herself does. Her small coterie of friends are written distinctly and vibrantly, each clearly the protagonist of their own life. Ultimately, the novella is about love and loss, about the extremes of grief, and about moving forward. It’s about living life fully, even after you’re already dead.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Sure to still be on my list of the best for 2017 at the end of the year. McGuire’s very original take on ghosts (and witchcraft, for that matter) produces a moving tale.’’ Locus
“This tightly paced adventure will win hearts with a charming protagonist and a well-earned ending.” Publishers Weekly
“A spooky, atmospheric love letter to New York and its shifting moods, skylines and people.” Sophia McDougall, author of the Romanitas trilogy
