"Flirting with the possibility of magic in the world, even as it digs deep into the dark complexities of human relationships, King and the Dragonflies is one of my favorite books of the year. Following a young boy navigating a devastating loss, questions about his identity, and real concern for a former friend, this remarkable novel offers a moving portrait of someone figuring out who they are, finding the courage to say what they really mean, and knowing exactly when to trust their gut."

— Meghan G.
