Shortlisted for the Dartmouth Book Award for Fiction, 2011 ?By having Normie tell the story, Arthur Ellis Award?winning Emery allows readers to walk beside the girl as she deals with her second sight, the abuse of other children, and the anguish she feels when the peace of her home life is threatened. Not since Robert K. Tannenbaum's Lucy Karp, a young woman who talks with saints, have we seen a more poignant rendering of a female child with unusual powers.” ? Library Journal
