This is one of the few books I've read that makes me long so powerfully to live in its world (let's be honest, to be the main character.)

The story is warm and loving, the writing lively and interesting. I already miss reading this book, and I wish I could have never left.

@jmccyoung thank you! I haven't fully back-filled my bookwyrm, but I read The House In The Cerulean Sea a few months ago. I enjoyed it, though I felt it skewed just a little more YA than Very Secret Society did. I think TJ Klune had just come off of writing a series of YA novels, so this would track..

The follow-up(?) to House, Under The Whispering Door (which btw contains an easter egg referencing House) is also very excellent in a similar vein, but a little more grown up as well. The themes in Under The Whispering Door had me absolutely sobbing, though.
