“Engrossing for both adults and teens attracted to alt-history fantasy or the Bronte¨s.”
— Library Journal - STARRED review
"Greenberg breathes life into the Brontës’ unpublished early writings...Those who appreciate historical fiction and classic literature will be engrossed by this reimagining of the childhoods of these literary luminaries."
— School Library Journal
"Greenberg pulls Glass Town and its characters directly from the Brontës’ juvenilia, giving readers a look into the early creativity of an iconic literary family with a playful visual style that captures the Brontës’ enthusiasm as they discover what fiction can do.”
— The A.V. Club
“Drawn with a cheery and expansive sweep that belies its sometimes somber subject, “Glass Town” is a testament to the (usually) redemptive powers of imagination.”
— The Minneapolis Star-Tribune
