There are whispers of a ghost in the slaughterhouse where sixteen-year-old Wen assists her father in his medical clinic—a ghost who grants wishes to those who need them most. When one of the Noor, men hired as cheap factory labor, humiliates Wen, she makes an impulsive wish of her own, and the Ghost grants it. Brutally.

Guilt-ridden, Wen befriends the Noor, including their outspoken leader, a young man named Melik. At the same time, she is lured by the mystery of the Ghost and learns he has been watching her … for a very long time.

As deadly accidents fuel tensions within the factory, Wen must confront her growing feelings for Melik, who is enraged at the sadistic factory bosses and the prejudice faced by his people at the hand of Wen’s, and her need to appease the Ghost, who is determined to protect her against any threat—real or imagined. She must decide whom she can trust, because as her heart is torn, the factory is exploding around her … and she might go down with it.

4.5 Of Metal and Wishes
I was feeling very skeptical even when I decided I wanted to read “Of Metal and Wishes” several years ago. I was afraid of being disappointed, of the story falling into another cliché routine that would mangle what was a very promising set-up. But I was proven quite wrong, something I am very happy ...

3.0 Of Metal and Wishes
Of Metal and Wishes is good re-imagining of Phantom of the Opera. It was effective at making me like and dislike the "ghost" just like the original story. I did get tired of the main character blaming everything the ghost did on herself, and the threat of rape loomed over her too much as well. I fel...

4.0 Of Metal and Wishes
I wish more of this book centered around the political tensions and less on the typical "boy->girl->boy" straight love triangle that plagues every Young Adult book ever. It's extremely well researched on the plight of workers and suppressed ethnic minorities, the author obviously did a lot of readin...

4.0 Beneath the Slaughter House...I Know he's There
I was introduced to The Phantom of the Opera way back when I was in the second grade when I had a slightly obsessed Music Appreciation teacher who showed us all those old Sarah Brighton music videos that were made back in the day since Gerard Butler hadn’t made the movie version yet. Given ...
