FOUR STARRED REVIEWS!!! “A ferocious young woman is drawn into her grandmother’s sinister fairy-tale realm in this pitch-black fantasy debut.

Jennifer E. Smith meets The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy in this deliciously nerdy sequel to THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN ME IS YOU, inspired this time by The Importance of Being Earnest. “This is wonderful book that explores the desire to be loyal to family and to create a space that belongs solely to oneself. Ever’s is a fresh and welcome voice that unashamedly embraces her geekiness.” — School Library Journal
