Praise for STRAY

“Sussman delightfully mixes dystopian tension with retold fairy tales, and the result is something wholly original.” -Booklist

“Fairy-tale tropes are turned on their heads in this exploration of class and ideology.” -Kirkus

“A particularly intriguing portrait…of a girl entrenched in a culture that shames women and their magical abilities.” -Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Enchanting original fairy tale that will completely captivate you” -Dark Faerie Tales

“This fun tale will appeal to reluctant female readers. Sussman explores some unique themes, including a LGBTQ relationship and even a yummy recipe in this fantasy with supernatural and romantic elements.” -School Library Journal

“The ending is exhilarating and nicely sets up for a sequel.” -San Francisco Book Review

“This book is perfect for those needing a book that can make you laugh, even in the darkest of moments.” -eMissourian

“What I love most about STRAY is that it takes these questions about magic and turns them into questions about our world – about female autonomy, about class inequalities, about justice and love. It makes the magic, it makes the stakes, real.” -Angie Manfredi

“It punched the patriarchy in the face and it was awesome.” -The Literary Omnivore
