The Scorpion Rules, by Erin Bow
Today at Kirkus, I talk about Erin Bow's The Scorpion Rules:
Platonic love, romantic love, love for a child, love for a hero, love for a mentor, love for a friend. So many stories and connections, and all effective and honest and real—even those that are only expressed in a few lines. Double points to Bow for subverting the love triangle trope—although there are two characters who love Greta, they don’t vie for her, fight over her, demand that she choose, treat her as a prize to be won.
