A 2017 LA Times Book Prize Finalist 
A New York Public Library Best Book for Teens, 2016

“…the unexplained miracles, intricately entwined stories, and long-buried family secrets would be at home in a García Márquez novel…With an offbeat approach and beautiful, evocative language, this unusual, fablelike novel will appeal to literary-minded teens.” —Booklist starred review

“Indeed, all of humanity and no small measure of godliness are on display in this translated Brazilian import that evokes a sense of wonder and treats readers to a fascinating glimpse of a setting and worldview seldom seen in Anglophone youth literature.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books starred review
