This is a sweet Christian story that will appeal to young adults and adults. The characters are well drawn, the voice is distinct, and the story heartwarming and funny by turns.
Skin and Bone

This is a lusciously drawn book. The images are stark and beautiful by turns. A very different book brought to life by a master storyteller. I want to see what tattoos she has.
In this alternative world full of magic, Eva Farkas lives in Budapest on the eve of World War II. Her best friend, a powerful witch, leaves on a dangerous errand for the vampire master of Budapest, and Eva finds herself alone, with a young woman to care for in a world that is dangerous enough for the magical. With no explicit magic of her own, Eva must find a way to protect herself and her young, innocent charge, using only her own "magic of fabulous".
The book is lush and Eva is a lively, brave, and precocious young Jewess with a perky and intimate voice. I thoroughly enjoyed the world building and worried for her as she made not only her way in this world, but found a way to strike a blow for herself and her people against literally monstrous Nazis.
