MEDIA REVIEWS
"The setting is a blend of Venice s canals and Louisiana s bogs; the plot is an almost cozy mystery with red herrings aplenty; the heroine is as plucky as her sidekick is prickly. Add just a dash of romance and you ve got yourself a fine gumbo of a book that, while satisfying in one gulp, may also have readers returning for second helpings."
Bulletin

"Cooper adeptly captures the transition from adolescence to adulthood as Yonie faces temptations and hard choices, but the real star of the show is LaRue, whose primness amuses while her mutual loyalty with Yonie gives the story its heart."
Publishers Weekly

Memorable, well-drawn characters. . . . Those who like unusual fantasies will enjoy this and will identify with the appealing Yonie as she searches for her roots and a place to belong.
Booklist

Unexpected twists leave readers both on edge and fulfilled. . . . Readers will enjoy unboxing Yonie s past right along with her.
