The Stone Girl's Story Reviews

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus

    Mayka was made by Father, a master stone mason who has since died. She lives in the mountain with her family of stone creatures, but as their markings wear off with age, the creatures are in danger of slowing completely down, like Turtle, whom Mayka mourns. In order to restore him and keep the other creatures alive, Mayka decides to travel to the city of Skye, where father lived, in order to find another stone mason. Along with two birds, Risa and Jacklo she gets into th

    Full disclosure for people who've never read any of my other reviews: I've basically got two settings, Coldly Intellectual and Ball of Mush. The book caught me in Ball of Mush mode, and I started crying within sentences. Following is a rough transcript of what followed, serving the dual function of catharsis and book review.

    Coldly Intellectual Plum (hereafter CIP, pronounced 'Kip', I suppose, if you're thinking aloud) said (to myself, not aloud, and certainly not calling me Mushy Plum, or BoMP):

    Five and a half stars. Review to come on the blog. (How long has it been since I loved a book enough to draft a review paper-pencil before blogging? How long has it been since I blogged a solo book?)

    This book. Move it to the top of your TBR pile. Let the story build through the 1/2 point, and then get ready at the 2/3 point for it to grab your heart and not let go.

    You care about the power of story, and the importance of telling our own stories? Then you'll love this book.

    My name is Mayka, and my father has died. The etchings on our stone bodies are fading, and the marks are what give us life. I'm leaving our home on the mountain for the first time, and I must find a new stonemason to fix the carvings. I'm happy that Risa and Jacklo are with me. The stone birds can fly ahead to warn me of danger, although Jacklo tends to get distracted and off course. We've met a small, stone dragon named Si-Si, and she's helped us find the city of Skye. Unfortunately, the Stone ...more

    What a wonderful story! A few years ago I read a few of Sarah Beth Durst's books; Into the Wild and the Girl Who Could Not Dream; and completely loved them; her way of telling a story appeals to the fantasy world I believe in as a child. When I saw The Stone Girl's Story I had to request it from Net Galley and was excited to be given a copy to read in advance.

    Stone Girl does not disappoint. Mayka has been carved from mountain stone by Father. He has also carved into life her friends Risa and Jac

    4.5 stars - really a delightful middle grade novel, and it's standalone! Review first posted on Fantasy Literature:



    Fearless Girl statue

    High up in the mountains, in a marble house, live a stone girl and her animal friends, who are also carved from stone. In this world, magical symbols and marks carved into stone make the stone come alive, giving it the power to move above, see, speak and hear, think, and even fly. Mayka, the stone girl, and her family of living stone birds, rabbits, a cat, an owl

    “We were elected to come with you.”

    “Oh? Who elected you?” Mayka asked.

    “It was a small election,” Jacklo said. “Very small. Only two votes. But we won in a landslide! There was a lot of cheering.”
    Sarah Beth Durst has a knack for describing the living stone carvings, their magical markings, and the Stone Quarter in the city of Skye, where the stonemasons live and work, with vivid details that bring them to life. Kalgrey the cat’s marks say, in symbolic language, “Sharp of tongue and claws, nimble of paws and mind.” Si-Si is a knee-high dragon carved of a lovely, translucent orange stone, but she struggles with knowing that she’s always been valued only for being decorative, and longs with all her heart to be able to fly like Jacklo and Risa.



    And I won’t soon forget Kisonan the noble stone griffin, offended by the questioning of his loyalty and determined to do what is right.



    The Stone Girl’s Story is a delightful, magical tale, with depth and insight as well as action and adventure. I highly recommend it for young readers in the 10-13 age range, and for those of any age who enjoy children’s fantasies.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, for review. Thank you so much! ...more

  • Rebecca Schaeffer

    This book was full of clever, unique worldbuilding, a likeable, smart protagonist and a well fleshed out cast of supporting characters. I really loved the different types of stone creatures and seeing how different they were depending on the marks given. A really fun, interesting look at what makes us human, and the choices carved into us before we're born vs what we can choose afterwards.

  • Jessica F

    What does it mean to be alive? Who is in charge of your story? The stone girl discovers the answers to these questions and more when she must make the choice to go down the mountain and find a way to save her friends, or stay and eventually become still. Loved every moment of this unexpectedly sweet and deep fantastical middle grade adventure.
