The bestselling author of the Shatter Me series takes readers beyond the limits of their imagination in this captivating new middle grade adventure where color is currency, adventure is inevitable, and friendship is found in the most unexpected places.
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 a 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.
Tahereh Mafi is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Shatter Me series. She can usually be found over-caffeinated and stuck in a book. You can find her online just about anywhere at @TaherehMafi or on her website, www.taherehbooks.com.
For today's Book Look, I was inspired by the cover of Furthermore and it's beautiful, vibrant hues! It made me think of bright colors, prints, flowers, and other girly pretty things!
I chose a number of fabulous dresses (because I love fancy dresses XD), most of which are designed by one of my favorite designers, Zuhair Murad.
Carven - Fall 2012/13 Collection
Zuhair Murad - Couture Spring 2013
Zuhair Murad - Resort 2016 Collection
Zuhair Murad - SS 2014 Campaign
Zuhair Murad - 2013 Spring Collection
Lastly, Furthermore's author Tahereh Mafi is well-known fashionista, so I found a lovely photo of her wearing an outfit that totally fits the aesthetic of Furthermore's cover, while totally making it an every-day, wearable look.
Tahereh Mafi, ladies and gentlemen. Look at that gorgeous outfit, you guys!
