Janet McNaughton is brilliant, and never more so than in this strange science fiction type of a book, that shows you a world of "could be"s. Exciting, and keeping you on the edge of your seat, I especially like the allusion to Guy Fawkes Day.

"There aren't a lot of poetry scripts. They all come from long ago. It only took me a few months to finish every one, but that doesn't matter. Poetry isn't like a story you only want to read once. Poetry reminds me of a jetty in St. Pearl. Every day, something new would float up on it. Sometimes things you'd want to find and sometimes not, but always something new. I read the poems again and again." The Secret Under My Skin, p. 13.
