Praise for Miracle Creek:
"A deeply moving story about parents and the lengths they will go for their children . . . Readers will be riveted by the book’s genre-bending structure and superb pace. Miracle Creek is a stunning debut about parents, children and the unwavering hope of a better life, even when all hope seems lost."
—Jung Yun, The Washington Post
"I literally couldn't put it down. It's that wonderful, brilliant story of book that you want to shove at other people as soon as you've finished."
—Erin Morgenstern, author of The Starless Sea
Praise for Trust Exercise
'“Zing will go certain taut strings in your chest. . . . Choi builds her novel carefully, but it is packed with wild moments of grace and fear and abandon. . . . a phosphorescent examination of sexual consent.”
—Dwight Garner, The New York Times
”Many novels teach their readers how to read them; the reader of this one must learn something else—to stay with the not-knowing long enough to find the truth.”
—Joanna Biggs, The New Yorker
