We Certainly Agree

The Horn Book Magazine, essential reading for anyone working with children’s and young adult literature, calls Laura Whitcomb’s novel A CERTAIN SLANT OF LIGHT “original, opinionated, sexy, and romantic.” The reviewer praises Whitcomb for being “unfailingly insightful,” concluding with more commendations:

Having sailed through establishing her original premise, Whitcomb successfully navigates a complex plot that after many dramatic turns is resolved both cleverly (in the case of providing Billy and Jenny with a continuing relationship after they each return to their bodies) and happily. “Just walk up to your hell and give it a push,” James tells Helen, and together they find their own heaven.
