A Room Away from the Wolves


Nova Ren Suma


Algonquin Young Readers

“Terrific . . . A gothic love letter to secret places of New York City and the runaway girls who find them.”— Kelly Link, author of Pulitzer Prize finalist Get in Trouble

“Harks back to Shirley Jackson (a creepy house!), Sir Walter Scott (a cursed opal!), and Henry James (another creepy house!) . . . It’s all mist and mood . . . shiver-inducingly delicious.” — Marjorie Ingall, The New York Times Book Review

“[Suma’s] narratives are subtle, quicksilver creatures, her language is elegant, and her characters keep more secrets than they reveal. If this book was a dessert, it wouldn't be a chocolate chip cookie or a vanilla birthday cake — it would be an earl grey lavender macaroon, or maybe balsamic fig ice cream.” — NPR.com
“This beautiful story is full of magical-realism and luscious, lyrical writing.” — BuzzFeed
