A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year

Bewitching, sensuous, and spiked with the unexpectedThe Waking Forest is a fever dream you won’t ever want to leave.“-Joan He, author of The Descendent of the Crane

“A stunning, spooky, and lyrical debut….The pacing is taut as the tension steadily ramps up, creating an atmospheric read that is impossible to put down. A sure hit for readers of edgy fantasy and fans of Stephanie Garber’s Caraval or Heidi Heilig’s The Girl from Everywhere.“–SLJ, Starred Review

[A] masterfully woven fantasy debut…[with] an intricate pattern crafted to twist, invert, and fall apart with exquisite precision. Into the woods like never before.“-Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“Wees layers worlds and characters with cleverness and subtlety,…darkly satisfying.“-The Bulletin

A twisting mix of modern story and fantasy tale.”-Booklist
