I really thought I would like this book and I did not. I found the main character annoying and unrelatable. The narrative of the story felt very disjointed. I was grateful it was a relatively short book.

This is probably the best book I have read in 2019. It is an excellent book. I immediately liked Elwood, but reading about his experiences at the Nickel Academy was sometimes difficult to read. I found myself taking a break from the book during the week because I found parts of this story angering and heartbreaking. If there is one book I would recommend it is definitely this one.

Leftcoastzen It is so good and so hard...I am about halfway through and I am already thinking it‘s the best book I have read this year. 2mo

I was absorbed in this book since picking it up. I would describe it as a ghost story that inspired Bram Stoker to write "Dracula." If you enjoyed "Dracula" or ghost stories I would recommend this book. “There are mysteries which men can only guess at, which age by age they may solve only in part.” ~Bram Stoker's Dracula

I learned so much from this book. I grew up watching "The Wizard of Oz" frequently as a child. I could not put this book down. I knew nothing about Maud Baum or the life L. Frank Baum. I loved reading about how strong Maud was and how she viewed the filming of the movie "The Wizard of Oz." I highly recommend this book.

I really enjoyed this book that partly takes place in the Prohibition Era. I honestly have loved every book I have read by Beatriz Williams. I think Gin is one of my favorite characters in her books.

I am quickly becoming a huge fan of Seanan McGuire. I really loved the second book in the Wayward Children series. I enjoy her writing, description and the way she weaves this story. The picture is from the book, and I liked the incorporation of a few images.
