Review: A Curious Tale of In-Between by Lauren DeStefano

A Curious Tale of the In-Between by Lauren DeStefano is a phantom of a book.  Vaguely frightening and infinitely interesting, it navigates the grey area between the land of the living and its spiritual counterpart with an eerie grace that will haunt you long after the book’s satisfying conclusion.  This story, written for middle grade kids, is thoroughly thrilling.  I would recommend it to anyone looking for something exciting and slightly dark; something that moves deliberately down a sinister path that authors like Neil Gaiman frequent.  The characters are charming and the writing leaves no room for complaint.  I give this book two thumbs up and an enthusiastic fist bump.
