Review:

Peter and Thea are vividly realized. . . . Gracehope itself is sketched with sure strokes, its icy setting and its matriarchal social structure fresh and believable. The Horn Book Magazine
Stead s debut novel rests on an intriguing premise. . . . It is a testament to the storytelling that the existence of this parallel world and the convergence of Peter and Thea s stories, told in separate chapters, are both credible and absorbing. Young readers will find this a journey worth taking. Publishers Weekly"
