Praise

Four stylistically brilliant novellas offer readers a range of exquisite reading experiences in this collection… Nayeri’s storytelling finesse is on full display here, as he creates characters and spins plots out of breathtakingly vivid wordsmithery; each story features language uniquely suited to its ambience and desired emotional effects, whether it be through clever wordplay in chapter titles, futuristic technojargon, a deliciously turned phrase, or a particularly apt metaphor. Language lovers as well as those who appreciate the artistry of a perfectly compact novella will consider this collection a treasure.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

Overall, provocative and deeply satisfying.
