“Brilliant storytelling that unearths new intersections of love and magic.”
-Scott Westerfeld, author of Uglies and Afterworlds
“If you don’t want a book with magic, mystery, lying parents, ancient curses, and true, true love (plus wonderful writing,) then I’m not sure I care to know you. But if you do, then Wonders of the Invisible World is the book you’ve been waiting for.”
-Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
“Barzak’s Wonders of the Invisible World is a wonder itself—a coming-of-age, coming-out, and crossing-into-the mystic novel all rolled into one. To the reader searching for all of these themes, I say, Look no further.”
-Tom McNeal, author of Far Far Away
“Part ghost story, part love story, this page-turner is a captivating exploration of the power of place, family, memory, and time itself.”
-Kirkus Reviews (For full review, click here).
“This story has plenty of appeal and potential and offers a twist on the typical paranormal romance—while a sincere, thoughtful LGBT relationship is important to Aidan’s character development, it isn’t the central focus of the book.”
– School Library Journal
“With leisurely pacing and simple, expressive language, Barzak expertly balances magical realism, historical flashbacks, and contemporary teen romance in Aidan’s journey of self-discovery. Give this to teen readers who want a quieter paranormal tale or a sincere love story between two boys.”
“The unpredictability of curses, magic, and love are inexorably entwined in this gracefully written story from adult author Barzak.”
