Among Others by Jo Walton

Jo Walton's latest novel is one of the most astonishing, affecting, and deeply personal pieces of fiction I've read in years. It'll appeal most to readers of science fiction and fantasy, especially those of us who grew up on it and for whom books resonated into the rest of our lives. This is a meta boarding school fantasy, a book about a reader whose story begins after she lost her twin, saving the world. It's about magic, the place of magic in our lives and what it means. It's incredibly real. It holds a mirror up to the reader and pierces you with the narrator's engaging observations on reading. This is a book I'll be thinking about for a long time, and I recommend it to everyone who deeply loves reading, and also to anyone who has found community through science fiction.
