BEST FANTASY of 2020:
“The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass”.
This debut fantasy novel wins my vote for the most imaginative little novel on the planet this year. So fun! Rich with diversity and surprising magic. If you are not hooked after three pages, I will be very surprised. Glad the second novel will be out soon. –published by Dundurn Press, Toronto, Canada
BEST MIDDLE GRADE BOOK of 2020
“The List of Things That Will Not Change” by Rebecca Stead.
Deep, funny, sweet, believable. The voice of the young narrator is as authentic as Scout in “To Kill a Mockingbird”. This is a lighter tale, but reaches deep. (Could I please book an appointment with Miriam?)
A duology for fantasy lovers! Original and unpredicable like a passing of the Wild Hunt overhead. Enjoy!
