Best friends Rosie and Adam find an old book with blank pages that fill with handwriting before their eyes. Something about this magical book has the power to make people vanish, even from memory. The power lies in a poem—a spell. When Adam's older sister, Shelby, disappears, they struggle to retain their memories of her as they race against time to bring her back from the void, risking their own lives in the process.
Book synopsis(via Goodreads):
***Many thanks to Net Galley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's Book Group or the advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. ***
This insomniac's opinion:
Really lovely and imaginative children's fiction that treats children as the creative and intelligent readers that they are. Full of mystery and deep friendship. Middle school age children or late grade school readers will enjoy this novel if they love a bit of magic.
Worth staying up all night to read?
Absolutely. A great read for children and parents alike!
