Juliann Whicker was raised with chickens, goats, and a cow named Mrs. Mooley who everyone (neighbors included) chased down the street in a small college town. She now lives in Southeastern Ohio with her four children, husband, and all the ticks and poison ivy a soul could crave.

What an intense ride! This book took me from high school to a Tim Burton directed Seelie underworld. It was a fascinating mixture of folklore, high school, and the Wizard of Oz.
My favorite part was where the heroine loses her name and becomes trapped in a black and white emotionless world without any loss of pace or my attention. I love how the writer manages to make wherever Karen is feel real however imaginative and unreal they may be. These are realistic and complicated characters in a rich and subtly portrayed world.
I think people would like this who like Holly Black's Faery world, Or Carrie Jones' Need series as well as Brenna Yanoff's "The Replacement".
I think that for a YA it has more adult themes and would recommend it for older teens or adults.
