The 2015 World Series

The Boy with the Hidden Name, by Skylar Dorset

A few months ago, I read The Girl Who Never Was—the first book in this series—and gave it five stars. I loved Selkie the narrator’s voice as all the irreverence was happening around her, and I loved the use of my hometown of Boston as a safe-haven for magical creatures. The book tied up its […]
