"A tense ride from the start...terrific." —Richard Kadrey, New York Times bestselling author of Sandman Slim
“With Elison’s trademark wit and turn of phrase, we are plunged into the life of Layla Bailey, a middle schooler living her life under extreme parental neglect. Despite its adult themes, the story reads like an adventure pitched precisely for children too young to be going through it—and an unsweetened peek into the inner moral battles of a neglected preteen.”
“Both in fiction and non-fiction, Elison is clear-eyed, unsentimental, funny, furious.”
"Meg Elison's stories will raise blisters on your conscience. Her politics are smart, her prose is like a razor, and her characters will break your heart. Read at your own risk."
"I could talk about female empowerment, body positivity, and gender flexibility. But those terms are wholly inadequate for Meg Elison’s clear-eyed satire in the guise of fantasy and science fiction. Powered by rage, incandescent with a deep understanding of injustice, angry for all the right reasons, and yet still essentially optimistic, these are the stories I need to keep me warm through the long dark night. Compelling and fierce and unstoppable."
"Meg Elison's work is visceral and compelling. A voice that doesn't so much demand attention, as it 100% deserves every ounce of it."
