A Demon of a Life in ‘Misfit’ | Kirkus Reviews

I blush…

Misfit isn’t a stand out because it simply inverts a familiar formula. It’s a stand out because it explores Big Ideas about religion and belief, good and evil, science and magic, family and friendship, trust and sacrifice. Those ideas are explored in depth, but without ever making the book more about the ideas than the characters, getting didactic, or slowing the action, pacing or plot.”

And this…

“Rather than reminding me of any of the paranormals I’ve read over the last few years—and there have been many—I was reminded of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, in terms of depth, scope and epic vision. If, you know, American Gods starred a teenaged girl.”

I’m totally okay with that comparison.
