"This book was just what I needed to read right now. In a time when it feels nebulous and unwieldy to be yourself, especially when the world doesn't particularly understand or care about who that self is, this book was like a beacon in the darkness. And oh! The language! Hayley Chewins could teach a master class on how to use prose to world-build. The Turnaway Girls has the strangeness and prettiness of Laini Taylor's worlds and prose along with the unforgettable characters and sense of justice that you find in Kelly Barnhill's work." * Lindsay Eagar, author of Hour of the Bees *
"A startlingly ambitious and lyrical debut, set in a fantastical world where silence really is golden and speaking up can cost everything. Fiercely imaginative and beautifully wrought." * Kiran Millwood-Hargrave, author of The Island at the End of Everything *
"The Turnaway Girls is a gorgeous fable about the way societies cage girls' voices and the revolutionary things that happen when those voices break free. Stunning, timely, and necessary." * Anne Ursu, author of The Real Boy *
"[...] if you enjoy lyrical reads, a little mystery and the magic of a song keep an eye out for this particularly gorgeous cover in your local bookstore." * FantasticBooksAWTFT *
