Seven Days reviews Katherine Arden, F. Brett Cox

Seven Days’ Margot Harrison reviewed two topical books in the latest issue of the newspaper: Katherine Arden’s YA novel Small Spaces and F. Brett Cox’s The End of All Our Exploring.

On Arden’s part, she notes that the book is “sure to creep out younger ones as she deftly balances the scares with the heartfelt feels,” and that it’s the “perfect read for any kid who comes home from the corn maze thoroughly unnerved by the dry rustle of wind through the stalks — and then asks for a scary story.”

When it comes to Cox’s book of short stories, she says that “while his characters explore many strange and forbidden realms, he never ceases to remind us that the human mind is the strangest one of all.”
