Nalo Hopkinson is a fantastic writer! I love that her books are great sci-fi/fantasy, but they're rooted in Caribbean culture. That's a perspective you don't find often in this genre, so it's a real breath of fresh air.

In this book, Tan-Tan is taken with her to the wild New Half-Way Tree, her home world's alternate universe twin, when her father commits a murder. Growing up there, she's subjected to abuse from those closest to her and the book is about her coming to terms with that and finding her own strength and sense of self, while making the most of her new home.

Very imaginative and engrossing.

Wow .... just finished this book. Not really what I was expecting - ok I could see there the story was going but I have to say I did not expect the dark places that Nalo went to......

Read Black Giril in the RIng first to get a handle on her idioms but again wow....powerful storytelling. She projects a future descended from various cultures where criminals are exiled to a 'neighbor' place where the things of folklore - not western folklore - have real counterparts.....but not the way it sounds. Really compelling world building...aliens and real characters....its a shame that we will not see Tan Tan the Robber Queen again... till we re read the book
