“Vanja wants just one thing. She wants enough money to escape the life of servitude her godmothers, Death and Fortune have promised her. She has stolen many things, jewelry, clothes, money, and the identity of her former lady, the Princess Giselle. Cursed by a low god, Vanja only has a fortnight to return what she’s stolen before the jewels growing on her body will take over and kill her...a lifetime of isolation, Vanja knows that she’s the only person she can count on. Perfect for fans of Six of Crows, this Bavarian-inspired fantasy is a delightful adventure with found family, thrilling mysteries, and is full of heart. Maybe Vanja wants more than one thing, after all.”Cassie, Wellesley Books

I Must Betray You
If you enjoyed The Fountains of Silence, then you’ll love I Must Betray You.
“Sepetys is brilliant at bringing lesser known history alive! This story is set in Romania towards the end of the Ceausescu regime, and is a stark and relevant reminder that historical atrocities are often very recent (1989 is yesterday to me). A well researched, heartbreaking, eye-opening, and humbling story of 17 year old Cristian who is blackmailed into becoming an informer. This is marketed as a YA title but please, please don't let that stop you from reading an amazing book.”Polly, The Hickory Stick Bookshop

“Two thumbs up. I loved how the pacing accelerated as the story unfolded. Intense and heartbreaking, as well as refreshing and angering, in the best of ways.

“Written in the exquisite lyrical manner that Anna-Marie McLemore does better than anyone, Lakelore is a vibrant and sensitive exploration of gender identity and neurodivergence. Their writing is always luminous and honest; their use of magical realism is powerful; and their deftness and care in writing about ADHD, Dyslexia, bullying, trans, and non-binary lives is excellent. I listened on Libro.fm and it was a delightfully multi-sensory experience between the illustrative writing and talented voice actors.”Ashleigh, Wellesley Books
