Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent, disturbing premise [with] superb prose . . . Under [Lumen's] spell, even the most staid reader would feel the impulse to run wild."
Shelf Awareness

"A compelling read that will likely resonate-after all, what's scarier than growing up?"
The Maine Edge

"A brilliant setup . . . A patient, thoughtful portrait of a girl progressing into womanhood, disguised as a work of speculative fiction"
Strange Horizons

"A fascinating look at a time during which we think we know everything, only to realize that we don't even know ourselves . . . When We Were Animals takes us on a journey that is at once completely foreign and utterly relatable."―Brooke Wylie, Examiner.com

"In ­Lumen, Gaylord creates an unforgettable and, well, luminous narrative voice, and his language captures the lush, dangerous possibilities of teenage nights to perfection. . . . this book deserves a breakout success like that of Jeffrey ­Eugenides's first novel, The Virgin Suicides."―Library Journal (starred)

"When We Were Animals conjures the dreamy satisfaction of revisiting the cult horror movies of your youth -- things are familiar but they resound in new and unexpected ways, revealing subtle depths and poignancy. This is a dark, inventive and absorbing story, fittingly theatrical. It disturbs and entertains in equal measure."―Benjamin Wood, author of the Costa-shortlisted The Bellwether Revivals

"[A] coming-of-age tale with a gory twist . . . There's no stopping this bizarrely fascinating journey of dark self-discovery."
Kirkus Reviews

"Admit it: you remember an animal time in your own life. And if you think you don't, Joshua Gaylord and his book will lash you with it. When We Were Animals has the power to creep you out and, yes, turn you on."―John Griesemer, author of Signal & Noise

"Imagine if Twilight were well-written and grown up. Coming of age in this small town is less about braces, and more about street fights and lots of sex. Yes, it really is good."―TheSkimm
