  1. Great story! I love the combination of biology, attraction, transgression and speculation. And the freakish image of eyes that can see in multiple directions but are unconnected to any kind of brain. Can’t wait to read Bones of an Inland Sea …

  2. Cezarija Abartis says:

    The intensity and passion inside this realistic, mild, almost non-fictional surface story is wonderful. The young narrator gets to see the sting of the world.
