Review

Praise for When the Moon Was Ours

"With luminous prose infused with Latino folklore and magical realism, this mixes fairy-tale ingredients with the elegance of a love story, with all of it rooted in a deeply real sense of humanity. Lovely, necessary, and true."
--Booklist (starred)

"McLemore mesmerizes once again with a lush narrative set at the thresholds of identity, family, and devotion... Readers will be ensnared in this ethereal narrative long before they even realize the net has been cast."
--Kirkus (starred)

"Readers who stick with this novel will be rewarded with a love story that is as endearingly old-fashioned as it is modern and as fantastical as it is real."
--School Library Journal (starred)

"It is a story of secrets, and of speaking them, and the power of saying-and living-your truth, without fear."
--Lambda Literary

"McElmore blends magical elements with a culturally vibrant cast to create a haunting modern fairy tale...Lush, reverential language remains a hallmark of McElmore's work... Readers interested in gender identity and the pull of family and history will find this to be an engrossing exploration of these and other powerful themes."
--Publishers Weekly

"McLemore dances deftly across genres, uniquely weaving glistening strands of culture, myth, dream, mystery, love, and gender identity to create a tale that resonated to my core. It's that rare kind of book that you want to read slowly, deliciously, savoring every exquisite sentence. I adored this book."
-- Laura Resau, Americas Award Winning Author of Red Glass and The Queen of Water

"Lushly written and surprisingly suspenseful, this magical tale is not just a love story, but a story of the secrets we keep and the lies we tell, and the courage it takes to reveal our authentic selves to each other and to the world."
-- Laura Ruby, Printz Award Winning-Author of Bone Gap

Praise for The Weight of Feathers

Ethereal and beguiling... The enchanting setup and the forbidden romance that blooms between these two outcasts will quickly draw readers in, along with the steady unspooling of the families' history and mutual suspicions in this promising first novel. --Publishers Weekly

Told with skillful poetic nuances, this Romeo-and-Juliet story of forbidden love will entice fans of Maggie Stiefvater's "Raven Cycle" who wished for a little more romance." --School Library Journal

A very imaginative modern-day romance akin to Romeo and Juliet and is infused with the whimsy of magical realism. --RT Book Reviews

Readers beguiled by the languorous language...will find themselves falling under its spell...A contemporary, magical take on an ever compelling theme. --Kirkus Reviews

""Scales and feathers touch and burn in McLemore's stunning debut. The beauty of the language wraps around you, not letting go until long after the final page."
--Jaleigh Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of The Mark of the Dragonfly and Secrets of Solace

Praise for When the Moon Was Ours:

"McLemore's second novel is such a lush surprising fable, you half expect birds to fly out of the pages... McLemore uses the supernatural to remind us that the body's need to speak its truth is primal and profound, and that the connection between two people is no more anyone's business than why the dish ran away with the spoon." --Jeff Giles, New York Times Book Review, on When the Moon was Ours
