Cat Winters’s critically acclaimed debut novel, IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS, was named a 2014 Morris Award Finalist, a School Library Journal Best Book of 2013, a 2014 Best Fiction for Young Adults pick, and a 2013 Bram Stoker Award Nominee. Cat lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and two kids.
This was an interesting read about being able to decide about your own future, your own life. Brought with a but of magic, Dracula and some very opinionated human beings this is an interesting story how a father tries to mute his daughter by hypnosis.
I really enjoyed the story of Olivia and Henri. There is a lot going on between them in different stages of the story. The choices made influence their relationship and it works out really nice. It is a book that makes you consider a lot of things but it is brought in a light way leaving it up to the reader how much he wants to dive into the subject.
