An emotional look at the ways we deal with trauma

Frances Hardinge often excels at delivering a deeper message in her novels, as she does in Unraveller. Kellen and Nettle's story gives readers a closer look at trauma, both in terms of how bystanders deal with others' suffering and how survivors live with the aftermath. Hardinge packages this in her typical creepy fashion with an unsettling setting, compelling narrative, and perfectly flawed characters. Unraveller (and any of Hardinge's works) are great for fans of weird fantasies with real-world parallels underneath.
