Critic Reviews

“Praise for Over the Woodward Wall : "With nods to The Wizard of Oz and Through the Looking Glass, readers of portal fantasy and McGuire's Wayward Children series will love this unsettling and imaginative adventure."-- Buzzfeed on Over the Woodward Wall "An experimental companion to McGuire's intricate novel Middlegame , Over the Woodward Wall first came to life as a middle grade story that serves as a pop culture touchstone for the characters in that adult novel. It's also a story by a master in its own right."--Den of Geek on Over the Woodward Wall "With lyrical prose and deep stores of emotion, this grown-up fairy tale works on every level." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review "[ Over the Woodward Wall is] a peculiar but often profound piece of metafiction whose emotional landscape offers more riches than its physical one." -- Kirkus Reviews "Teens will relish the adventure, remarkable creatures, and clever wordplay in Avery and Zib's story."-- Booklist More praise for the author: "Has an uncanny knack for taking the worst things that lurk in the shadows and weaving them into an absolute delight."--Becky Chambers on Middlegame "A mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy--a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics"-- NPR on Every Heart a Doorway "One of the smartest writers around."--Charlaine Harris on Every Heart a Doorway”
