Review:

"I fell completely under the spell of Anton DiSclafani's amazing first novel and was gripped by its lush and dreamy evocations of Southern decorum, family secrets, and boarding school rituals. DiSclafani is wildly talented, and this is a sexy, suspenseful, gorgeously written book."--Curtis Sittenfeld, author of "Prep"

""The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls "is so sexy, smart, and vividly drawn that I was surprised to remember that this novel is Anton DiSclafani's first. With such a big-hearted and atmospheric book, Ms. DiSclafani's talents should be celebrated far and wide."-- Lauren Groff, author of "The Monsters of Templeton

""Thea Atwell is an unforgettable heroine, and DiSclafani's pitch-perfect details of time and place effortlessly drew me into this fantastic novel's authentic and alluring world."--Laura Moriarty, author of "The Chaperone"

"In her haunting debut, Anton DiSclafani reminded me how I came to love reading as a child, the way a book can so envelop you in its unique and vibrant world that even as you race toward the end, you find yourself dreading the moment it's finished. It's a fierce and tender, beautiful novel."--Aryn Kyle, author of "The God of Animals"

"Set in the 1930s, full of alluring descriptions, and featuring a headstrong lead character, this is a literary novel that is also full of scandal, sex, and secrets. . . . [Readers] will be held in thrall by the world so vividly and sensually rendered here in a novel that is as sophisticated in its writing as it is in its themes."--"Booklist "(starred review)
