31563982This week I’m looking forward to Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi. Ahhhh….the cover for this book is fantastic! Persian MC wearing a hijab on the cover? YES! YES! YES! I love everything about this book but will sadly have to wait until November 14th to get my hands on it. This is going to be a very long wait!

Our story begins on a frosty night…

Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.
