Product Details


“A deeply moving story of family, homelessness, and the ghosts that won’t let us go. Haunting and unforgettable.”—Megan Shepherd, New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Horses of Briar Hill

“A skillful debut presents a nuanced view of homelessness. . . . heartbreakingly beautiful. . . . The blend of dark and lovely will appeal to David Almond fans.”—Kirkus

“Carroll’s lovely prose, laced with gothic imagery and canny clues, will carry readers through this slow-burning exploration of homelessness, the haunting hold of memory, and what it means to forget, to forgive, and, just maybe, to move on. Like the stories our unlikely heroine adores, this part fractured fairy tale, part fable is sure to cast a delightful yet devastating spell all its own.”—Booklist

“Shines with true originality.”—SLJ

“A poignant, heartbreaking, and, ultimately, healing debut novel. . . . This is a sensitive portrayal of a timely issue, presented in a unique and nonjudgmental fashion. The sorrow, futility, beauty, and, finally, hope will stay with the reader. This is for every reader who enjoys stories of family, love, and loss, mystery, and the power of hope and optimism.”—VOYA
