"Almond's lyrical narrative will sweep readers on a journey to unearthly, mysterious realms and back."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Innovative and dreamlike . . . and told in Almond's distinctive prose. Teen readers of a literary bent and mythology enthusiasts will love this latest work."--School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Almond brings his hypnotic lyricism to this darkly romantic tale that sings of the madness of youth, the ache of love, and the near-impossibility of grasping death."--Kirkus Reviews ." . . captures the heady rush of reckless youth. Readers will likely be transfixed by this rhapsodic modern telling of a classic tragedy."--Booklist

"Almond's . . . prose seeps into your blood like word venom until you can't imagine reading anything else."--The Times (London) "David Almond's books are strange, unsettling wild things--unfettered by the normal constraints of children's literature, beyond classification."--The Guardian

"Printz Award-winner Almond delivers another haunting, intricately-woven piece of literature."--VOYA

"The evocation of the desperate immediacy of adolescence itself . . . is artfully rendered."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"An ode to the mad joy of youth, mortality and love."--Shelf Awareness
