Bittersweet and resplendent in a way that is so thoroughly LaCour!

A quiet, introspective, and somber kind of book that is beautifully written and very atmospheric. It almost felt like an extended short story, making a very quick read but also one that makes you want to read slowly. Although it was slightly repetitive at times, and I think it could have benefitted from another few pages, I really enjoyed reading this! LaCour's prose gets more and more lovely with each book.

Old book from a TBR subscription box. Pulled from the shelf randomly but ideal to kick off spooky season with this short ghost story.

Sad, mysterious, and quite lovely.

I know this author’s adult book Yerba Buena is popular now and after this I’m looking forward to picking that one up.

I am on a roll reading sad books without plots. Blergh. At least this one had a hook: Marin runs away from home and is super depressed, but why? We know pretty early on that she's was raised by her Gramps and he passed away. But it doesn't quite explain Marin's level of freak out. She abandons everything, flies across the country and spends weeks alone in a motel. The story is told through flashbacks and it's gradually revealed why Marin is suffering.

This is an atmospheric, lyrical book about loneliness. I did not really enjoy it, but I think I see why the Printz committee picked it.… (mais)
