Monthly Teen Book Suggestion
Felicia's Monthy Pick!
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
The story of a girl named Alice, always on the run with her mother, but never knowing what they are running from. "Bad Luck" as they called it, meant that something always went wrong if they stay in one place for too long. But when Alice's grandmother, the mysterious author of a book of dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate - the Hazel Wood - Alice learns how bad her luck can really get. Her mother is kidnapped by a monster who claims to come from the cruel fairytale world from her grandmother's stories. The only lead Alice on where her mother was taken is the message she left behind: Stay away from the Hazel Wood.
Alice works with Finch, a friend and a fan of the Hinterlands book, to ventrue to the Hazel Wood and save her mother.
This is by far one of my favorite books! The story is exciting and fast-paced. You're always wondering what is going to happen next and what the next twist is going to be. The fairytales from the Tales of Hinterland and interspersed throughout the story, which gives some frightening insight into the world that Alice gets drawn into. - Felicia
