Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Being young doesn't protect you. Horrors come for kids, too" is a lesson Lucretia "Loochie" Gardner learns the hard way in this gripping novella. Loochie is a plucky 12-year-old from Queens living in an apartment complex rife with rumored creatures from the underworld. She struggles to come to terms with her best friend Sunny's ongoing battle with cancer, as the two have been inseparable for years. When Sunny returns home from her latest round of treatment, the girls make a plan to hang out at Loochie's--without parental supervision. But Sunny doesn't show, and Loochie dives into twisted waters in her quest to find her best friend. This fantastical tale by widely-praised novelist Victor LaValle is about children, but markedly for grownups. The author writes as though he too has faced the sobering horrors that childhood can contain. LaValle allows Loochie's heroism real complexity. Encounters with demented crackheads, winged rats and haunted playgrounds push Loochie to confront her many fears, but none are quite as scary as knowing she may lose Sunny forever. --Raya Jalabi
