Among Others is a fairy tale, of sorts, about a lonely, precocious fifteen-year-old bibliophile growing up in the ’70s and struggling with loss. With her characteristic imagination and originality, Jo Walton captured the fierce intelligence and awkwardness, along with the mingled sadness, hope, and yearning, of adolescence.
