☙Praise for Odd & True

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

“The story is adventurous and fast paced, and Winters' atmospheric writing and exploration of themes such as storytelling, family, disability, and trauma will entice many teens . . . An excellent purchase for creepy historical fiction shelves.”
School Library Journal, 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.”
