After the success of Tahereh Mafi’s series, Shatter Me, the author is ready for another adventure. This time, she is going to release a Middle-Grade book this year, on 30th August. The book has already a title, Furthermore, and also a very interesting synopsis (taken from Goodreads):
“The bestselling author of the Shatter Me series takes readers beyond the limits of their imagination in this captivating new middle grade adventure where color is currency, adventure is inevitable, and friendship is found in the most unexpected places.
There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.
But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit—and with a liar by her side in land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father Alice must first find herself—and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.”
Her fans have waited so long to see the cover of Mafi’s new book and, finally, it was revealed by EW, Enternainment Weekly magazine:
It’s such a very beautiful cover! So colorful! It’s totally perfect for middle-graders!
Her fan base is basically young-adults, but everyone is excited to read Furthermore!
