Liesel & Po by Lauren Oliver

I am SO excited about this upcoming release by Lauren Oliver! I was lucky enough to pick up an ARC of this at TLA and let me just say, this is a book I'll also be picking up when it's out on October 4th! It's FABULOUS and I love it when some of my favorite YA authors also write MG books.
Here's a little bit about the book:

Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice—until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.

That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable

Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes a luminous and magnificent novel that glows with rare magic, ghostly wonders, and a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places. -quoted from HarperCollins

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
