"Lyrical writing and rich imagination compensate for loose plotting in this quirky, joyous fantasy."
From the Publisher
Annotation Ekaterina Sedia's unusually creative streak is in full force in this charming fantasy novel about a college student who, looking to find her own way and distance herself from her dysfunctional family, moves into a house populated by roommates each distinctly connected to the supernatural world. Sedia blends the "real" and the "fantastic" with such pleasant ease that readers will not flinch for a second.
