    I absolutely loathe middle grade books for the most part with the exception of a couple of books including Furthermore. I find them not gritty enough, however, I'm fine with like children's picture books. Yes, this book was dark... yeah darkly awesome. People need to calm down. Did anyone not read Scary Stories back in elementary school? That pretty much had cannibalism going down! Lol!

    I absolutely loathe middle grade books for the most part with the exception of a couple of books including Furthermore.

Did anyone not read Scary Stories back in elementary school? That pretty much had cannibalism going down! Lol! I have an eight-year-old myself who has already read all the Harry Potter books, so I would have no problem with her reading this.

    I feel like kids that haven't had the best upbringing could also relate to the main character, because she has had a hard life herself. The struggle is displayed very well through Mafi's beautiful words. The originality and world is what had me captivated the entire book.

    My one request is dear God let their be a YA book or NA book on these characters!!

    lmao i forgot to come back and give this an actual review, so here i am like 6 months later.

    Tbh I don't remember much but I know that I loved Laylee and the writing was atmospheric and beautiful as always, but I couldn't really tell what this was trying to do. Some of the plot and setting elements just seemed slightly too much at arm's length to really comprehend but it was glossed over quickly. Despite the insanity of the world, its hyperbolic nature is reminiscent of classic children'

    Tbh I don't remember much but I know that I loved Laylee and the writing was atmospheric and beautiful as always, but I couldn't really tell what this was trying to do. Some of the plot and setting elements just seemed slightly too much at arm's length to really comprehend but it was glossed over quickly. Despite the insanity of the world, its hyperbolic nature is reminiscent of classic children's literature and it is definitely a unique reading experience.

    I'm just not a fan of companion series, and this was a weak attempt at linking the two worlds together. This book is driven by Alice & Oliver's mission and it was weird that Laylee was in the forefront even when that whole plot point existed. So although this book was gorgeous, there were too many technicalities that fell short of my expectations and left me grasping at straws. (is that a turn of phrase? did i do it right?)

    i just think i'm always going to enjoy her YA books more than her middle grade, so i can't wait for restore me!!!!!!!!

    LOOK AT THAT PRELIMINARY COVER ART!!!! AHHHHH!!!!!! I'm basically going to beg Penguin to get me any advanced copy that exists because I am DYING for this. I need more Tahereh in my life. I need this. Persian MC? YES PLS. The dark counterpart to Furthermore? YES PLS. UGGHHH I just want this so bad. I have a feeling it's gonna be a slam dunk bc of underlying messages about self love and maybe even politics. I hope this book is real good.

    WE GOT A TITLE!!! WHICHWOOD!!!! WHICH WOOD IS IT???? WE DON'T KNOW!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!!! SEPTEMBER 2017!!!! THIS IS THE ONLY LIGHT OF MY LIFE IN THE DARK, DISMAL TIME BEFORE US. THIS WILL SAVE ME FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. Okay genuinely I thought Furthermore was such a gorgeous and atmospheric book and I hope this one can deliver that as well <3 I was nervous going into Furthermore because I didn't know if it would be as good and as pretty as Shatter Me, but now I know that Tahereh can never let me down. Let's just hope she tours to Texas this year! I miss my woman :') <3

    So it's confirmed that this is middle grade in a "neighboring magical land" to Furthermore. Kinda dampens my excitement but I mean, come on. IT'S OUT IN 2017!!!! I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT 3,000 YEARS!!!!!!

    tahereh mafi has a way of making me relate to any character, no matter how fantastical or ridiculous or far fetched from reality their situation is. i can always bring back what she's saying into my own life. it's so important that books like these are being written for kids today.

    - strangely - has been bumped up to young adult. There's no unsavory or offensive content in

    that would make it unsuitable for upper middle-grade readers (ages 10 to 14), but parents may wish to know about two scenes that are slightly graphic:

    3.5 stars. This was slightly more interesting than Furthermore. I find it peculiar that it is marketed as a companion to its predecessor, because to me it feels like a sequel, though one whose main character is Laylee instead of Alice.

    Laylee and Alice have something in common: both of their fathers have disappeared. They also both have magical abilities, but Laylee’s are much darker. Her job is to prepare dead bodies to the afterlife, a consuming task that gnaws at her lifeline.

    Indeed, Laylee

    3.5 stars. This was slightly more interesting than Furthermore. I find it peculiar that it is marketed as a companion to its predecessor, because to me it feels like a sequel, though one whose main character is Laylee instead of Alice.

    Laylee and Alice have something in common: both of their fathers have disappeared. They also both have magical abilities, but Laylee’s are much darker. Her job is to prepare dead bodies to the afterlife, a consuming task that gnaws at her lifeline.

    Indeed, Laylee is going to die. Perhaps this is why Alice and Oliver were sent to Whichwood? Perhaps they will be successful in their task to relieve her from the pressure she is feeling every day? Perhaps they will save her? Maybe, but then again maybe not.

    I found this so-called companion novel better than Furthermore because I was very captivated by Laylee’s special abilities. Have I not mentioned that she can see the dead? Well, she can and does… Quite often, as you can imagine. And obviously I cared about her wellbeing, so I hoped she would be alright in the end.

    Still, I think this author shines at writing YA novels. This was dark and cute – sometimes *too* cute – however what I like most about this author is the way she writes about emotions… raw, incontrollable, scary and passionate… which, understandably, are not very present in middle grade reads.
