"Atmospheric and emotionally rich, this intense story practically sings with defiance, swaggering like the rock and punk of old. A strong debut from an author to watch."
~Publishers Weekly (starred review)


“Anyone who has been swept away by a song will relate to this book. Those who appreciated Coda’s complexity will be rewarded with this finale that grapples with major questions about the fallout of war, the nature of family, and the power of music.”

Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times

"In this steampunk one character is all good or all bad, and Trevayne explores their motivations and machinations thoroughly. The richly drawn world and inventive steampunk elements help this novel stand out from the pack of middle-grade fantasy."
~School Library Journal

The Cabinet of Curiosities: 36 Tales Brief & Sinister

“A hefty sheaf of chillers—all short enough to share aloud and expertly cast to entice unwary middle graders a step or two into the shadows.”
~Kirkus (starred review)

The Accidental Afterlife of Thomas Marsden

"Full of mystery and suspense, this fantasy adventure presents a likable main character, an eye into historical London, and an opportunity to recognize that sometimes it is our very ordinariness that makes us special."
~School Library Journal (starred review)
