First Book Review!

cover

My first book review just came in by Linda Michel-Cassidy for Prick of the Spindle. She’s such a great writer and really got to the essence of the book. I love this:

“DeBiase uses the curious nature of this place well. The reader learns that here, anything could happen. And that ‘anything’ includes the terrible. It’s a daring thing to place matters of imminent concern within a speculative framework. It is equally risky to write from a child’s point of view with that character (unknowingly) assessing psychological states. And there is the tree as narrator—I was at first, suspicious of this tactic, but now I see that giving voice to an entity with physical and immediate detriment caused by the changing landscape makes sense. As DeBiase says of the mother, ‘It was strenuous work to sustain a vision, but worth it.'”
