As someone who had the privilege of reading the first two installments of Hasani Walker's Patchwork Girl series, I've been anxiously awaiting the third book. It's been quite a wait--two years, in fact--but we're finally able to continue this adventure. In this story, Patchwork Girl and Poco come across Stitch Haven, a town populated by living dolls. On top of that, each doll has their own insect companion, thus revealing to us readers that doll-insect pairings are not unique to our two protagonists. Despite being one of the longer books in the series, there really isn't a whole lot that happens in this story. In fact, the Patchwork Girl herself is barely even featured, though she's constantly being talked about by other characters. Most of the focus is on Poco and his inner musings regarding his connection to Patchwork (or apparent lack thereof). He struggles to decide if the two of them staying together is really in her best interest, and whether or not they should continue on their way. All in all, it's a very character driven story, and while there isn't much in the way of excitement, it's still a nice quite read. It has a bit of a "calm before the storm" feel to it, (especially when looking at the final page.) Although Hasani was kind enough to let me have a free preview of this book before it was released, I've still gone ahead and ordered a physical copy for my collection. There are at least three more books to be released in this series, but how quickly they come out depends on sales. So if want this wonderful and unique series to continue, I suggest picking up a copy yourself!
