I received an arc from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Middle grade fiction never ceases to amaze me, and this book is another fantastic example as to why I will NEVER stop reading 'children's books'. Gwendolyn lives in a boring grey city with boring people, but she refuses to grow up to be a boring grey person and who can blame her?! Adulting SUCKS! I loved coming home from a long day at work to read about her crazy imagination and the PIRATES 😍😍😍. I AM A SUCKER FOR PIRATES!

Managed to get through this book in a day! It lived up to my cute expectations, I was totally getting Disney vibes from it and it didn't disappoint. Merida from Brave definitely made an appearance in my head, stepping in to play the role of Gwendolyn :p
I loved the magical whimsicalness to it, while also the fantastical elements such as the Lambents and her imagination running away with her. I didn't even cringe at the cronies because it's just the type of cute middle-grade story this was :) Alth ...more
Yeah, it's a pretty good book. I guess. I mean, it's all right.

Gwendolyn Gray is a twelve-year-old girl living in a gray city, under gray skies, with gray clothes and gray buildings. She doesn't want to grow up, after all the adults look all the same and didn't do anything different ... ever. But Gwendolyn has something that they don't - she has imagination.
This is a middle grade fantasy-adventure story. At the start it reminds me a bit of Momo de Ende. But later some characters inv ...more
Gwendolyn Gray is a twelve (going on 13) year old red-haired girl in a seemingly Dystopian Gray world and the only citizen who has an imagination and that's her problem. With her colored hair and vivid, colorful imagination, she's labeled as Rebellious and Rioter. And at first, she didn't even know the real danger of her imagination, or the real beauty of it. And as everything in Gwendolyn's Gray world turned clearer to her, she was also thrown into a perilous adventure that includes saving the ...more

(I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.)
I finished this book in 3 days—which given the pace at which I live (and the current imbalance in my work life balance), that is a definite compliment to the author. I loved Gwendolyn Gray—right from page one—and I thoroughly enjoyed this book about her. I give the book four stars, but it could be a three or a five depending ...more
