THE CRANE HUSBAND by Kelly Barnhill

“This dark novella is woven from threads of classic fairy tales of crane wives and men who turn into beasts, braided with the bleak sensibility of the midwestern gothic and the compelling determination of a young girl who needs to protect her little brother. It is a fast-moving, lush story that refuses to end neatly, a story of flighty mothers and the daughters who die a little keeping their families alive. Fans of fairy-tale retellings will eat this one up.”–Booklist, starred review
