This is one of the most imaginative, mysterious and entertaining books I've ever read. I waited for weeks for the circus to appear after I finished reading. Once you enter the enchanting world of Celia & Marco you are taken to a place with black & white tents, caramel corn, contortionists, and magic clocks. It seems around every bend there are more surprises, but it seems the biggest surprises happen outside the circus. - Heather

Lidia Yuknatictch writes with paiful honesty. She hangs herslef out to dry, throws herself under the bus, calls herself our for the mistakes she's made and comes to some uncomfortable conclusions. This book exposes her life in raw, brutal frankness. She admits to the reader things I can only imagine took years to admit to herself. Some of it is very matter-of-fact, other pieces are more reluctant but with all if it she bravely lets us in. 

She has a very lyrical style, her words move like water along the page. Yuknacitch has created a very inspiring book about the things we do to feel, love, forget, survive, and live.

This book reads like a river. It sounds like a river. It moves like a river. You takes some sections fast, others very slowly taking note of every detail. 

You get to know the town of Neawanaka and residents as if they were your neighbors. 

The language is beautiful and its impossible to put down. One of the best books I've ever read!

This book is written beautifully. It not only tells the author's journey
into the cold, but it addresses issues about our rapidly changing
climate and what happens when the icebergs start melting just a little
bit faster. She explores what losing winter might mean for the entire
world, from plants to animals and humans to ice.

The stories in this reader are weird, just like the citizens of the PNW.
Each section gives you different authors' takes on the places they call
home. It's a great, quick read whether you're a Pacific Northwesterner
or a non-native wondering why everyone loves this corner of the U.S. so
much!
