“Haunting character complexity that ultimately holds the reader captive to the tale.” ―N. J. Jemisin, New York Times, on My Real Children
“A spectacular coming-of-age tale that encompasses everything from courtroom dramas to sexual intrigue.” ―Cory Doctorow on The Just City
“Brilliant, compelling, and, frankly, unputdownable.” ―NPR on The Just City
“Most fantasies evade [the] great and challenging opportunities to make the implausible plausible, to give magic accountability in a realistic setting and moral and emotional weight in a modern novel. Jo Walton accepts the double challenge and meets it with courage and skill.” ―Ursula K. Le Guin on Among Others
“Has as much in common with an Alice Munro story as it does with, say, Philip K. Dick. Good novels show us a character’s destiny as an expression of who they fundamentally are. What most novels do only once, My Real Children does twice.” ―Lev Grossman on My Real Children
