THE COLLAGIST Reviews HOUSEBOUND

An excerpt from Angela Woodward’s review:

While Housebound might easily pass as YA fiction, most of its action limited to the world of the teenager, it’s more than that, deliberately playing with that limit and transcending it. It ends with hopefulness, with mysteries resolved, but my mind turns back to the middle of the book, when out of nowhere Maggie sees herself dressed as a mermaid being propelled by unseen hands. Gentry lets that image loft through the dark for a hundred pages before we see it from a different angle. The suspension of resolution is skillfully crafted, where the blur, the shadow, and the fingers over the eyes hinder vision, and yet we know we are moving through a beautiful nightmare.
