There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.

But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit—and with a liar by her side in land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father Alice must first find herself—and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.

I’ll admit, the cover is definitely the reason why this book caught my eyes! It’s a middle-grade, but it sounds pretty awesome!

    Oh, I agree — the cover makes me WANT this so much! and this also makes me think of Alice in wonderland, besides the character’s name! Here’s mine: http://editingeverything.com/blog/2016/08/10/waiting-on-wednesday-arrowood/

  3. I love the Shatter Me series, but probably won’t pick this up since it’s middle school. I do love that cover though!
