TAB Book Review: A Trick of the Light by Lois Metzger

Reviewed by Dylan
This novel is like nothing I have ever read before. I mean sure, I've read novels about teens battling eating disorders but Lois Metzger's novel stands out from the others.

Since Princess Julianna, the sixteen-year-old princess who has mysteriously disappeared, and Sasha are analogs, or doubles, Sasha Read more
