I would have read and loved this book if it were just a messy story about teenagers in a band who kiss the wrong people. It is that and much, much more. Known for her shorter fiction, Kelly Link makes full use of the novel form to build an enchanting world grounded in the mundane but with magical twists: people turn into animals, supernatural beings vie for power, and four dead students come back to life and must complete a series of magical tasks to earn the power to stay. If you love weird slow burn puzzles that keep you guessing, read this book. If you want your heart to be touched, read this book.
