“This book captured me instantly on pegasus wings, and took me on the weirdest, funniest, most heart-breaking journey to literally the edge of the world. By the last page I was totally in awe.”
–MAGGIE THRASH, AUTHOR OF HONOR GIRL
“Gracie's sparkling narrative voice is funny, smart, and convincingly ingenuous...
An endearing narrator, a beguiling world that accommodates both mermaids and Pixy Stix, and a genuinely moving family story.”
“Anderson's latest is a bit off the wall, in the best way possible… [Gracie is] a winning combination of a narrator who guides readers through her marvelous and dangerous world...with us cheering her on. Highly recommended fantasy for ages 9-12.”
—INGRAM NEWS AND REVIEWS FOR THE YOUTH LIBRARIAN
“[Infused] with effervescent magic and harrowing adventure…Anderson leaves no stone unturned as she creates characters with zest and heart, as well as settings that encompass the best of all imaginary lands.”
