    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Narrator LuLu Lam’s silvery, matter-of-fact tones are perfectly suited to portray Sol, who is trying to navigate adolescence and keep her little sister happy and safe by any means necessary…As the narrative jumps between past and present, between misery and anticipation, Lam’s range and insight guide her through a parade of intriguing characters… Lam’s poise and skill give extra weight to the action, and bolster the fantastical stories that Sol uses to keep herself strong in times of despair.”
