Yesterday at Kirkus Reviews...

...I wrote about Eve Bunting's Forbidden, which... eh:

But I digress. And as my digression began before I even started to write about the book I’m here to talk about…well, that doesn’t bode all that well for the book, does it?

It’s not that Eve Bunting’s Forbidden is particularly problematic in any way, it’s just… thin. A lot of atmosphere, and not much else.

Can anyone answer my question about wreckers at the beginning of the column? Did my younger self originally learn about them in Susan Cooper's Greenwitch, or am I remembering it totally wrong?
