A fellow librarian once described this to me as "fantasy for people who don't like fantasy", which feels like an incredibly accurate description. It's fantasy, but the focus is on human emotions and themes like growing up, outgrowing your friends, etc. It's quiet in a way that a lot of kids' fantasy isn't, despite still having a solid, page-turning plot. This is a good one to curl up with on a cold winter's day -- it will put you in a properly snowy, atmospheric mindset.
