Review of Being Small

I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while now, but all the many things have kept me too busy. Getting the final typesetting and cover work done for A Ragged Magic (which is awesome and you will totally want it).

Anyhow, Marissa Lingen reviewed Being Small on her blog and her website. And among other things, she had this to say:

… The rest of [Michael’s] friends are kind and welcoming to him despite or because of that, but what role Small plays in Michael’s treatment of the dying is closely written and perfect for the 16-year-old they both are, living and dead. The spiraling ending is chilly and horrible and yet fits the warmer tones of the short book leading up to it perfectly.

Not my usual sort of thing, but if you’re not turned off by the description of what sort of internal/external ghost story this is, it may well be worth stepping outside your usual too.
