In Darkling Wood (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Carroll, Emma

For fans of Kelly Barnhill's The Girl Who Drank the Moon, Jack Cheng's See You in the Cosmos, and Erin Entrada Kelly's Hello, Universe, In Darkling Wood is a haunting and poignant exploration of family, loss, and redemption (Booklist, Starred Review). When Alice is suddenly bundl...ed off to her estranged grandmother's Nell's house, there's nothing good about it, except the beautiful Darkling Wood at the end of the garden--but Nell wants to have it cut down. Alice feels at home there, at peace. She even finds a friend, a girl named Flo. But Flo doesn't go to the local school, and no one in town has heard of her. When Flo shows Alice the surprising secrets of Darkling Wood, Alice starts to wonder: what is real? And can she find out in time to save the wood from destruction? And don't miss Emma Carroll's newest novel, Strange Star! A haunting and poignant exploration of family, loss, and redemption. --Booklist, Starred Review A tale brimming with emotion and atmosphere....[In Darkling Wood] is absorbing and well written. Hand this to readers who enjoy fantasy, fairy tales, and magical realism. --School Library Journal, Starred Review Magic and mystery adds appeal to this already compelling family drama...and Carroll manages to wrap all of the threads into a wholly satisfying ending. --Bulletin Beautifully drawn, and the pragmatic prose and completely modern language (except for the letters) ground the story. The fairies aren't covered in pixie dust here. Carroll is becoming well-known in her native England; this book should win her American fans. -Kirkus Reviews
