Praise for All of Us With Wings

“A spellbinding tale about finding magic in the mundane and hope in the unknown. Filled with dizzying danger and electrifying music, All of Us with Wings left me breathless.”
—Ruth Ozeki, Los Angeles Times Book Prize-winning author of A Tale for the Time Being

“Michelle Ruiz Keil creates a vivid and original novel full of music, rage, and characters that sing with purpose. Keil is a new voice to keep an eye on.” 
—Zoraida Córdova, award-winning author of Labyrinth Lost  

“A love letter to live music, a poem to a city in novel form, and a poignantly nuanced examination of the ways in which performance impacts life on and off stage. In equal parts realistic detail and surreal vision, All of Us with Wings bursts off the page and goes with you into real life.”  
—Anna-Marie McLemore, author of Stonewall Honor Book When the Moon Was Ours and Blanca & Roja

All of Us with Wings is a decadent slice of post-punk rockstardom that will have you begging to stay at the party till sunrise. This gorgeous debut looks unflinchingly into often unexplored experiences of adolescence—abuse and addiction, lust and desire, found families and chosen homes—finding beauty and redemption even in the darkest places.”
—Tehlor Kay Mejia, author of We Set the Dark on Fire

“I’m convinced that Michelle Ruiz Keil has woven a magic spell into these pages. All of Us with Wings is gorgeous, gritty, and utterly transfixing.”  
—Sara Holland, New York Times bestselling author of Everless

“Michelle Ruiz Keil puts exquisite language and wild imagination to the fierce onslaught of sensation and doubt that is adolescence. This is a story for young adults, but perhaps it is also a deeply poetic tale of what is lost in the transition to adulthood.” 
—Joanna Rose, author of Little Miss Strange

“The writing soars . . . This tale of found family and recovery weaves an unforgettable punk rock-infused spell.”  
Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“[An] atmospheric debut . . . Keil plays with prose and imagery, interweaving the dreamlike language of Francesca Lia Block with a Latin-American sensibility. The frank inclusion of sexual exploration and drug use adds an extra level of maturity to this thoughtful story about trauma and vengeance, adult decision making, and recovery.” 
—Publishers Weekly 

“Intriguing and well-crafted.” 
—YA Books Central  

“Keil is at her best playing with the magical realism element . . . using lush, imagistic prose to cast a dreamy (sometimes nightmarish) pall over the scenes.” 
—Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books

“A fascinating story about growing up.”
—Rich in Color blog

“A stunning re-imagining of Jane Eyre, set in San Francisco and exploring themes of found family, processing trauma, and growing up . . . With her magical setting, lush prose, and unforgettable characters, Michelle Ruiz Keil has created a world that you won’t want to leave.”
—Cecilia Cackley, East City Bookshop (Washington, DC)
