There’s been a lot of positive buzz for new Young Adult book, Anna and the Swallow Man! We love it too, but see what others have to say:
“Though this is technically a book for young adults, the message of the story is powerful enough to resonate with all ages….Savit’s novel, though a quick read, is a powerful one. And just like the child it follows, it has a deeper poignancy masked by its seemingly simple surface.” –Mashable
“The third-person narrative – lyrical, fluid, with a pervasive shadow of menace – lands a folkloric feel to a graceful story steeped in history, magic, myth, and archetype; comparisons to The Book Thief… are apt regarding writing style, themes, and intended audience beyond the protagonist’s years.” -The Horn Book, Starred
“Like the characters in his debut novel, author Gavriel Savit has harnessed the power of language. He’s a talented wordsmith, wielding words and sentences with a precision that allows them to wriggle deep into his reader’s heart, leaving me both enchanted and heartbroken.” –Publisher’s Weekly Children’s Bookshelf
“Savit’s economical prose beautifully capture’s a child’s loss of innocence and the spiritual challenges that emerge when a safe world suddenly becomes threatening.” –Publisher’s Weekly, Starred
“As of right now, I’ve read 335 books this year. This one is my favorite.” –Chew & Digest Books
“Just go and read it – it is impossible not to love.” –The Guardian
