- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 December #1
In eighteenth-century France, Marie Antoinette holds court in the Palace of Versailles, and appearances are everything. On the rue Charlot, three orphans struggle to survive. Camille uses exhausting magic inherited from her mother to transform twisted metal into temporary coins, willing to cheat to keep her sickly sister fed, while their older brother drinks and gambles. When he absconds one dark night with what little they have, Camille turns to more dangerous magicks: glamoire, which takes its power from sorrow, and which she can use to transform herself. Disguised as an aristocrat, Camille heads to Versailles to play games in order to keep herself and her sister alive. But she's not the only one here with two faces, and revolution is simmering on the streets of Paris. Safety may be beyond the grasp of even magic. The many-tiered plot occasionally stalls, but this is an immersive, glittering debut that intriguingly blends history and fantasy. A striking examination of power, privilege, and choice in a limited world, that makes Trelease a new voice to watch. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
