And man DJO can spin a tale cuz from the minute Tee spotted ghost girl I wanted/needed to know what her story was. And bit by bit it unfolds. All the while intertwined with seeing what's going on with Tee and Izzy's relationship.
Not only that we get the story of two missing girls. One for whom it's too late, but for the other there's still hope (maybe?, no spoilers) it's a sobering tale, one that sadly, happens all too often. So amidst all my chuckling at the character's antics this part got me right in the gut.
Coupled with A+ hilarious dialogue and intriguing characters (uncle Neville!!) and a lil cameo from one of my fave characters from the Bone Street Rumba series (again, no spoilers go read :P) I thoroughly enjoyed this novella.
And there's a sneak peak of book 2 in the Shadowshaper series, Shadowhouse Fall so i neeeeed it now!!
I adored the fact that this, like Shadowshaper, was a political commentary especially with regards to how police can and do tend to treat brown people when they go missing. Which basically comes down to the fact of if you’re not white they don’t particularly care as much.
I definitely advise you read this book AFTER reading Shadowshaper (it’ll make SO MUCH MORE sense).
Can't wait to find out what happens to the crew in the next book!
Older's prose and dialogue are finely sculpted as always, and the girls are beautiful together in all their adolescent awkwardness and ambition and love. I especially appreciated that they get an older queer woman to look up to, enhancing the multigenerational feel that Older has taken care to develop in the series in general. Even allowing for the short length, the plot feels a little piecemeal—there's an unnecessary last-minute complication, and the villains' motivations are never really clear—and the newspaper idea, which was full of nifty potential, is quickly left behind in the flurry of magic and action around the central mystery. But perhaps those elements will come back into play in the forthcoming Shadowhouse Fall or other future installments. There's also a brief cameo from a favorite character in the Bone Street Rumba urban fantasy series, tying all of Older's Brooklyn stories together in a way that will delight his fans of all ages. This is definitely worth picking up for a quick dose of queer black girl magic.
