I'm beyond excited to be the first to reveal the cover of an amazing middle grade novel coming your way in May.
The author is my friend and brilliant writer Susan Hill Long.
The Magic Mirror:
Concerning a Lonely Princess, a Foundling Girl, a Scheming King and a Pickpocket Squirrel
Don't you just love that title?
Okay, drum roll, please.....
From the jacket flap:
Maggie is a girl of no account. The good folk of Lesser Dorste all look away, for she’s a foundling cursed with a crutch. She doesn’t even want to look at herself—till the day she’s given a magic mirror. And what she sees in the mirror sends her straightaway on a journey to the royal city.
Others, too, are making their way: A monk with a tragic history and a boy with an uncertain future. A princess with a dark secret and a lord with wicked ambitions. A mad- woman with a checkered past and a beggar with a air for the dramatic.
In this twisty-turny tale of mistaken identities, missed connections, and loves lost and found, these wanderers and more will meet Maggie on her journey to heal herself . . . and her kingdom.
Add this one to your list, y'all.
