    1 thought on “Winterfolk”

    1. I don’t think that I have ever read a book that had a homeless person as the main character. The synopsis is not overly descriptive, however, the concept of having to adjust one’s way of life and experiencing the world differently really intrigues me. Looking forward to reading this debut next year!

    2. I have read quite a few YA books, and I must admit, I do not believe I have read any, which gave me such a detailed look into the life of a homeless teen. This was quite interesting, in that Rain had lived isolated from the outside world in a sort of compound. Her sheltered existence showed in her observations and the narration as she sometimes seemed childlike. When King took her into to the city for her birthday, her inability to interact with strangers and her discomfort with the world at lar [...]

    3. How shall I describe this book? At once both hopeful and sad, gritty and yet filled with magic, Winterfolk pairs the harsh reality of homelessness with a magical, lyrical writing style to create an ethereal novel about love, family, belonging, acceptance, and community.Rain lives in the Jungle, the forest outside of town that shelters the Winterfolk. Rain knows how to be invisible, living with her father, King - who is friend, protector, everything - and a collection of souls who use the forest [...]

    4. I received an ARC of Winterfolk via Edelweiss. ***3.5 Stars***.Janel Kolby did a stunning job bringing us into Rain’s world: a world that is small by measure, but boundless in her imagination and wonder. Kolby’s handling of Rain’s worldly perspective made for a prose filled with tenderness and compassion. You immediately understand Rain’s perception is built by what’s she’s read in fairy tales/been told by others. That said, when she is finally given the chance to see it for herself, [...]

    5. What can I say about a book that is set in Seattle and told from the perspective of a homeless girl?First, that is was completely unlike anything I have ever read. I mean, we get this point of view of someone who has never known anything but a tent in the forest. She has only her father as family and the other residents of "The Jungle" who call themselves Winterfolk. Rain is fifteen-years-old. She knows how to read, but not write and keeps a rock garden outside of her tent. Her fiend and protect [...]

    6. I believe this is the first book I've read that gave such a detailed look inside the life of a homeless teen. Rain lived most of her life with her father, in their tent, moving when forced, never really putting down roots. She was very isolated and sheltered. The book wasn't particularly fast paced even though it mostly took place within a day or two and the focus mainly stayed on Rain and her trying to find her way back after being separated on a trip to Seattle.Rain had just turned fifteen in [...]

    7. I received this from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Rain is a homeless girl living with her father in a tent in a community of other homeless people. The group has been told to vacate the area because construction by the city will soon begin. As the group must find a new place to go, Rain is given the opportunity to explore the nearby city with her friend King. The two go to the local laundromat, where they are quickly separated. Rain spends the day traveling through the city trying [...]

    8. Caveat: despite my relatively low rating, I think there are quite a few people out there that will really love this book. My rating has more to do with the fact that I was expecting/hoping for one type of book and got a different typeI was really excited about this one after seeing the prepub reviews. After having helped out in some homeless shelters in Seattle, I thought I might be able to make a real connection with this book. What I didn't know going in is that this book is not realistic fict [...]

    9. 3.5 stars. Not a lot of books on homeless people, which is sad. There's a lot. I enjoyed Winterfolk, but sometimes Rain was really confusing and kind of crazy (not in a good way.)I almost didn't want to finish this because of how weird the characters were.d how they treated Rain was weird and never explained in my opinion. This book also kind of put me in a bad place because I could easily become someone like Rain. It's on the verge of happening and I can't do anything about it. Anyways, this bo [...]
