    The setting is San Francisco soon after the earthquake in the early 1900s. Isabel is a little girl who lives with her mother in a fancy house with servants attending to her every need. But what Isabel wants is to feel like her mother and father, who lives in Carmel, actually do love an...

    The City on the Other Side is a graphic novel set in 20th century San Francisco, after the events of the great earthquake of 1906. The story follows young Isabel, finding herself on a quest to return a magical necklace. The City on the Other Side's story is one of urban fantasy. Th...

    Rather predictable in terms of plot, and sorely lacking on the historical side. But this graphic novel is gorgeously illustrated and I would love to read more about the (Un)Seelie world and the diverse cast that exists just on the other side of the Veil. Perhaps with a time skip so we ...

    I now choose to believe that all natural disasters are caused due to concerns on the other side of the veil. Let's all keep the other dimensions happy, ok? See our picks for natural disasters and the books we think caused: http://bookcrush.in/blog-tour/girl-po... ...

    This was so cute! I loved the art. The fairies all looked like different kinds of monsters. It?s a good read-a-like for the Amulet books. Though, I feel maybe for a slightly younger audience. Another good one-sitting kinda read. ...

    I love stories of the Fey folk, and this one was fun because it took place in an alternative version of San Francisco, which is where Isabel ends up, when she gets her hands on a magic necklace that allows her to travel to the land of the Fey. Although I love that this story took pl...

    Isabel isn't having the greatest time at either of her homes -- her mother doesn't seem interested in her and her father appears to be more comfortable working with his sculptures than interacting with her. When Isabel stumbles upon a dying fairy who bequeaths her a necklace and a miss...

    An interesting fantasy that could possibly turn into a series. In some ways a period piece, set in early 20th-century San Francisco, it presents an intermingling of worlds between the human and fairykind. That's nothing special, but the unique twist to this premise is that there are co...

    I really liked this graphic novel! The art is amazing, and I love all the diversity in both the Fae and the humans. Set in San Francisco (and it's Fairy equivalent on the other side of the Veil) just after the Earthquake and subsequent fire of 1906, it tells a tale of a neglected girl ...

    This was a fun amalgam of a historical setting and a fantasy world. Scott's story is filled with high stakes and developed characters--particularly on the other side with Isabel's sidekicks like Buttons. The story in the "real" world is decidedly less developed. Most bothersome to me w...

    An interesting fantasy that could possibly turn into a series. In some ways a period piece, set in early 20th-century San Francisco, it presents an intermingling of worlds between the human and fairykind. That's nothing special, but the unique twist to this premise is that there are co...

    I really liked this graphic novel! The art is amazing, and I love all the diversity in both the Fae and the humans. Set in San Francisco (and it's Fairy equivalent on the other side of the Veil) just after the Earthquake and subsequent fire of 1906, it tells a tale of a neglected girl ...

    This was a fun amalgam of a historical setting and a fantasy world. Scott's story is filled with high stakes and developed characters--particularly on the other side with Isabel's sidekicks like Buttons. The story in the "real" world is decidedly less developed. Most bothersome to me w...

    Actual Rating: 3 1/2 stars out of 5. Like the plot, a lot of these characters are pretty classic, but combined with the vivid drawings and the deeper themes, they?re simultaneously almost new. Benjie?s quest of confusion and identity becomes a story that?s uniquely his; Button...

    An interesting fantasy that could possibly turn into a series. In some ways a period piece, set in early 20th-century San Francisco, it presents an intermingling of worlds between the human and fairykind. That's nothing special, but the unique twist to this premise is that there are co...

    I really liked this graphic novel! The art is amazing, and I love all the diversity in both the Fae and the humans. Set in San Francisco (and it's Fairy equivalent on the other side of the Veil) just after the Earthquake and subsequent fire of 1906, it tells a tale of a neglected girl ...

    Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. There isn't much that makes me happier than seeing strong female lead characters in a kid's graphic novel. Set after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Isabel is raised to become a proper little lady by her em...

    I really enjoyed this middle grade fantasy graphic novel! Isabel crossed the barrier between the human world and the fairy world. There are two types of fairies, the Seelies and the Unseelies. It was hard to distinguish between the Seelie and Unseelie because each fairy was a differ...

    Actual Rating: 3 1/2 stars out of 5. Like the plot, a lot of these characters are pretty classic, but combined with the vivid drawings and the deeper themes, they?re simultaneously almost new. Benjie?s quest of confusion and identity becomes a story that?s uniquely his; Button...

    An interesting fantasy that could possibly turn into a series. In some ways a period piece, set in early 20th-century San Francisco, it presents an intermingling of worlds between the human and fairykind. That's nothing special, but the unique twist to this premise is that there are co...

    I really liked this graphic novel! The art is amazing, and I love all the diversity in both the Fae and the humans. Set in San Francisco (and it's Fairy equivalent on the other side of the Veil) just after the Earthquake and subsequent fire of 1906, it tells a tale of a neglected girl ...
