FURTHERMORE, by Tahereh Mafi


The story: Alice’s father has gone missing, in search of magic. Alice, quite determined to hide her own magic, ends up on a quest with Oliver to rescue Father. But their mission means leaving the land of Ferenwood, where magic is safe and useful, and venturing into Furthermore, where it’s dangerous and unpredictable. (Plus, your traveling companion is never quite the person you thought you knew.) There’s always something new in Furthermore–people flat and colorless as paper, Father Time appearing as a kid, or simply folks who’d like to eat you just to see what flavor of magic you contain. Surprise! (But maybe not in a good way.)

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: A charming and unusual fantasy.  If you’re a magic fan who doesn’t need swords and wizarding duels, but are just as happy with tricksy people and unusual places, give this one a try!
