grav_ity: (PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS)
Pitched as "Labyrinth, but in the late 1700s, in Germany", WINTERSONG is about Liesl, who is good at music, but a girl and therefore untaught. When she was little, she used to dance with a boy in the forest, but then she had to grow up and be the only responsible sibling, and she locked the music away. With her younger brother, the other half of her soul, getting all of the teaching and all of the love, her middle sister gets ignored...by everyone except the boy that Liesl forgot.

What follows is a story I really enjoyed, where a girl goes to the Underworld and makes a tonne of choices and gets to be more than one thing, which I really, really loved.

Also: excellent use of music, family dynamics, sex, being-a-girl, and German diminutives. I am not a Labyrinth fan, but I enjoyed this book a lot.
