Praise for The Good Neighbors
"Black does a wonderful job of weaving an alien faerie world through Rue's urban landscape, and Naifeh's art, rich with shadows, is expressive and angular and pulls the reader into the story."—Booklist
"Searing and exceptionally well-written." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"[Black] skillfully blends the mystical elements with a murder mystery, family drama, and a bit of ever-popular teen angst. Black also does not shy away from the darker aspects of faerie legend, which gives the story a nicely unsettling aspect at all times."—www.BrokenFrontier.com
"Ted's knack for misfit characters with a dose of humor is a perfect fit with Holly's vision of the faerie world. And I don't throw words like 'perfect' around lightly."—www.The-Trades.com
