Thistlefoot (2022)
GennaRose Nethercott
"GennaRose Nethercott is a literary trickster god who has crafted a wonderfully imaginative, wholly enchanting novel of witness, survival, memory, and family that reads like a fairy tale godfathered by Neil Gaiman and Tim Burton in a wild America alive with wonders and devils alike. Thistlefoot shimmers with magic and mayhem and a thrilling emotional momentum. Kill the lantern; Raise the ghost--the show is about to begin."

Guardian of the Dead (2010)

How to Say Goodbye in Robot (2009)
Natalie Standiford
"Sweet, sad, wonderfully quirky, and delightfully original, Natalie Standiford's beautifully honest book made me laugh in surprise, nod in understanding, and wish that I were part robot so that my heart would stop breaking."
