5.0 out of 5 stars But it's brave and it's honest and (often) quite funny. While all the short personal essays are good, August 21, 2014
I remember a lot from when I was a kid, more than most I'd think. But Michelle Junot's first book implies that she remembers a bit more than most. She remembers everything. And she's embarrassed and confused by all of it.

To know where you're going, you have to know where you've been. Each of the stories in "And the Floor was Always Lava" is trying to reconcile past with future. Trying to figure out where a person is going is hard; using the past as a cipher? Not easier. But it's brave and it's honest and (often) quite funny.

While all the short personal essays are good, special notice should be paid to "lava laws", "if you hate church" and "catching my breath." What appeals to one reader isn't the same as what appeals to others, but those particular pieces, I wanted to eat with a spoon of irony and sympathy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fiction you can sink your teeth into, September 6, 2013
First of all, this is a great first novel.

What Ms. Zupko has done with The War Master's Daughter is create a living, breathing world. There are real characters operating within the confines of a political and social structure all of Zupko's own design. While the reader may not understand the actions each character takes and the choices they come to, it all makes sense when viewed from the prism of the universe within the pages of the novel. Ambition, love, regret and passion all abound.

Once I got into The War Master's Daughter, I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for (what I hope will be) new installments.

With over 20 great stories to choose from, the reader is never bored. The future of the writing industry is before us: online viewership is pushed through to print media, to be shared for everyone.

Great job!
