Editorial Reviews


“Told with riveting language, this is a poignant tale that will resonate with readers of all ages and leave them reeling from such an emotional, gorgeous story.” — Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of Aru Shah and the End of Time

“From its first words, The Land of Yesterday has the pure crystal ring of a classic, like The Little Prince or The Phantom Tollbooth—beautiful, unique, and shimmering with truth. It’s a balm for grief, and a bursting fantastical joy of a story.” — Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of Strange the Dreamer

“Richly imagined, creative, and entertaining.” — School Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars A deep and dreamlike journey to a land of lost souls
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on September 18, 2018
After Cecelia Dahl's brother dies in a tragic accident, her mother, grief-bound, tries to follow him into the place where all souls go after death - the Land of Yesterday. Cecelia, bearing the guilt for her part in her brother's death, embarks on a dangerous mission to rescue her mother.

Also featured: a kidnapped (dadnapped?) father, a mad sentient house, sentient hair!, gnomes in hot air balloons, a sea of daisies, people turning to paper, a planet of nightmares, a cameo by the Little Prince himself (St Exupery too)... It's not your standard middle-grade world-building. A bizarre but satisfying dream logic guides the non-stop dirigible-ride of a plot, and the sheer strangeness of it all allows the author to maintain a sense of enchantment while tackling weighty topics - death, abject guilt, grief - head on. (As you see from the author's note at the end, she's been there herself.)

Re. the book's treatment of the theme of coping with loss: no quick fixes are offered. Learning to carry your departed loved ones as part of you, living in the now instead of remaining lost in yesterday - these aren't easy palliatives; they're states of being we have to fight for, not least because how we deal with those we've lost has a profound effect on how we deal with those we haven't.

It's tempting to call it an intertextual Easter-egg hunt, given the volume of literary references. But the literary refs are more than just fandangles. You don't find them lying on the ground; often they ARE the ground. Sometimes the characters themselves are straight out of literature. You'll want to go and read/re-read The Little Prince, Lewis Carroll's Phantasmagoria, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader etc. etc. and ponder the relationships between those books and K.A. Reynolds' cosmos. Will definitely be re-reading this one, I'm guessing more than once.

Gorgeous artwork by Helen Musselwhite and Jensine Eckwall.
