Genre: Fantasy, Middle Grade
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.
Shelf it on Goodreads!
Okay, honestly, I never thought that Tahereh’s new novel will be a middle-grade one, so I was a bit shocked when I saw the cover release and felt the middle-grade vibe. I researched and saw that it’s really middle-grade. I love the Shatter Me trilogy, thus I shall definitely read this. However, Shatter Me was the one of the most boring books I’ve ever read. Ignite Me, though, is the best among them three, so consider me excited to read this book.
Look at that amazing cover that gets a 100% score. Just plain 100%. Perfection.
