The Hazel Wood
A fairy tale for modern times, Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood is atmospheric, enchanting, and more than a little haunting. Bad luck seems to follow Alice and her mother everywhere they go, and their fortune doesn't change when they arrive at the Hazel Wood estate. The sprawling home and its grounds belong to Alice's grandmother, a reclusive author. Soon, Alice's mother is spirited away to Hinterland — the not-so-fictional world her grandmother "invented." In order to find her mother, Alice must team up with her grandmother's fans and enter a world of the supernatural.
