It is the story I would have adored as a small child. I am truly enamored with this tale and upon finishing, I find myself wishing it was a series of books; that I could remain inside this world for longer In this old-fashioned tale of orphans, ghosts, and runaway apprentices, a little girl and her new friends go on a strange adventure which is by turns humorous, tense, pl poignant.

Mar 20, Lyndz rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I felt a wonderful sense of calm as the story ended, thinking about the mastery of what I had just read.

Childhood is something that’s enormously precious to each and every single one of us, and since most children won’t exactly understand that if we tell them, and that mostly ruins the point of childhood; that soft, brilliant, innocence, it’s our job as adults to just give them the nudge in the right direction.

There was evil stepmother Augusta, complete with murder, a rotund body and an icy daughter; thickheaded Mo, soft and sweet; the Lady Premiere, who was like a stepsister; and then the alchemist, who ,auren a bit Jack Frost-esque to me. What I also found great was how every characters had a big part in the novel.

But through all their difficulties, I loved how they kept on moving forward. I recieved an ARC from a teen library group that I’m on. I can’t stop reading it!
