A must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy or twists of faery tales. I can guarantee that anyone will be surprised by its originality and strength * THE GUARDIAN * ...a wickedly entertaining mash-up of genre conventions and enthusiastic subversions in which the perennial adolescent desire to be seen as normal takes on a whole new meaning. * THE NEW YORK TIMES * A rollocking story of evil faeries and teenage angst in modern day USA * THE BOOKBAG * This is a book of lies and lost memories. This is a book of tales and curses and love. This is Holly Black doing what she does best: with gorgeous prose that flows beautifully, complicated female characters and a story of back and forth, The Darkest Part of the Forest is an elaborate modern fairytale that subverts genre expectations. * THE BOOK SMUGGLERS * The revival of the modern day fairytale continues its journey in this wonderful and surprising YA novel ... Black has crafted characters that are both innocent and naive yet strong and alluring * SCHOOL LIBRARIAN *
