Praise

“[an] imaginative debut…” The New York Times

“Chin (Let the Tornado Come, 2014) delivers an endearing protagonist whose epic quest ends with a measure of closure and wonder about the magic embedded in the unknown.” — Booklist, STARRED review

“Readers of Alice Hoffman, Erin Morgenstern, and Sarah Addison Allen will love this character-driven contemporary fantasy.” — BuzzFeed Books

“Piling revelations atop otherworldly descriptions, the novel wields its uncanny enigmas in an unapologetic fashion…The Strange Inheritance of Leah Fern is an enchanting novel that embraces all of the magic that the world has to offer.” — Foreword Reviews

“Exquisitely beautiful and eerily wise. Deeply philosophical yet full of magic . . . a work of literary excellence.” The Southern Literary Review

“An emotional and cutting new voice in literature demands your attention, so get this book as soon as possible. And give a copy to every reader you know!” Book Reporter

“Chin has a sure hand in showing Leah’s transformation as she processes her childhood neglect and learns to open up…[she] reaches some admirable heights.”  Publishers Weekly

“There is much to admire about the author’s glittering imagination…traveling with Leah Fern and seeing the world through the eyes of an empath are enjoyable.” Kirkus Reviews

“Rita Zoey Chin’s new novel is a beautiful, haunting tale…” CrimeReads

The Strange Inheritance of Leah Fern is a bittersweet and achingly tender coming of age novel. Like V. E. Schwab and Audrey Niffenegger, Rita Zoey Chin is an expert guide to that territory in which magic, loss, and possibility change not only the characters but the reader, too.” Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble

“A book that captures such tenderness and longing, and one where the rhythm and enchantment of every sentence lures a reader into joining Leah’s search, with plenty of rewards along the way.” Aimee Bender, national bestselling author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
 
“To read The Strange Inheritance of Leah Fern is to be transported into a world so luminescent and full of wonder, so infused with sorrow and hope and joy and magic, that I wish I could send a copy to everyone on Earth. Rita Zoey Chin’s captivating debut novel is the best kind of enchantment–transformative and moving and full of untold delights.” Catherine Chung, Author of Forgotten Country and The Tenth Muse

“I was enchanted by this exquisitely written book and the fierce and lovable Leah Fern. Suffused with magic and longing, the novel casts its own tender and solitary light, as if etched on a frozen lake under a full moon. [Its strange glow won’t quickly be forgotten.]” Sharon Guskin, author of The Forgetting Time
