Second Starred Review for ODD & TRUE!

Yesterday I shared the starred Booklist review, and today I'm ecstatic to announce that Odd & True received a second star, this time from School Library Journal!

 You can read the full review at Thank you, School Library Journal!

We've had some other wonderful trade reviews come in during the past month, as well. Here's a full list of the additional advance praise we've received. I'm extremely grateful for all the kind words for this book.

★ “Thought-provoking, atmospheric, and utterly bewitching.”
Booklist, starred review

“[A] captivating, poignant tale of childhood magic and the bond between sisters.”
Publishers Weekly

“Storytelling and the blur between truth and fiction are at the heart of this metafictive narrative . . . Winters has woven an intricate and innovative pattern of structure, genre, and history that cannot fail to capture readers’ imaginations.”

“Winters is a master at weaving historical events into dramatic narratives touched by the supernatural . . . There are monsters here, paranormal and human, but they're no match for two girls skilled in wit and weaponry.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“Cat Winters is a masterful storyteller . . . a dark historical fiction/fantasy novel that will keep readers up late in the night.”
ALAN Picks
 Odd & True is coming September 12, 2017, from Amulet Books/ABRAMS.

Starred Review from Booklist

I'm thrilled to pieces to announce that Booklist gave Odd & True an absolutely beautiful starred review!

Here's an excerpt from the review:

In chapters alternating between the sisters’ perspectives, Tru recounts their magic- and monster-filled journey eastward, while Od reveals the grim reality behind her fantastic stories about their family and her disappearance. As the sisters tell their respective tales and, sometimes painfully, sift fact from fiction, Winters gradually pulls back layers of the truth, revealing a story deeper and darker than any garden-variety monster-killing quest could be . . . Thought-provoking, atmospheric, and utterly bewitching.”

Thank you, Booklist!

Just a little over a month left until Odd & True hits shelves around the world. Look for giveaways, a blog tour, and other treats in the coming weeks!

Odd & True arrives
Sept. 12, 2017, from Abrams.
