Description
A captivating and colorful adventure that reads like a modern day fairy tale, from the b estselling author of the Shatter Me series. "Brimming with color and magic." -- New York Times Book Review   - New York Times bestseller! - Featured on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," NPR, TIME, and Entertainment Weekly   Inspired by her childhood love of books like  A Secret Garden  and  The Chronicles of Narnia , bestselling author Tahereh Mafi crafts a spellbinding new world 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. 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.    "Tahereh Mafi is a maestro of words, and Furthermore the most magical painting that ever existed, bursting with color and heart and humanity. I wanted to stay inside this masterpiece forever ." - Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend and The Young Elites series "A place so full of enchanting beauty and topsy-turvy adventure, it even calls to mind Wonderland and Oz.... Friendship, family and self-acceptance. What makes this book truly sing is the lush world Mafi has created, brimming with color and magic ." -- New York Times Book Review ★ "A fast-paced, funny, and richly imaginative story that embraces and celebrates individuality." -- Publishers Weekly , starred review ★ " Rich, luscious, clever prose." -- Kirkus , starred review

display_description "It's been almost three years since the day Father disappeared from Ferenwood with nothing but a ruler in his pocket, but Alice Alexis Queensmeadow is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she'll have to embark on one to find the other. But it's hard to imagine how a colorless girl with no magical talent of her own could possibly be the heroine of any grand quest. To bring Father home, Alice will 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, who has his own tangled secrets to unravel. It will take all of Alice's wits to make it through Furthermore and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of uncertainty and loss." --
