Publisher: Dutton Books for Young Readers
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.Tahereh is not a new author for us. We, the staff of this blog, have met her and adore her to pieces. She is truly an inspiration to all of us. Furthermore is her new novel and it's pretty colorful. Today, we want to share with you all these amazing pictures of Becca's colorful bookshelves. She recently shared pictures of her new arrangements and OMG we freaking love it.
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.
If you read Furthermore, you will be inspired by the beautiful and colorful details of this story. And like Becca, you will want to rearrange your bookshelves! In addition, we've partnered with Penguin Random House to offer this giveaway to a reader of this blog. Learn more below! Good luck!!
