Today’s featured book is Splendors and Glooms by Laura Amy Schlitz.
“I picked it up to give to my son to read and loved it myself. Written by a Newberry Medal Winner who never delivers a less-than-stellar book. A confused little girl. A master puppeteer. A missing child. A witch. Betrayal via a criminal past of one you trust. Dickens-era locale. Mystery. Magic. Written for ages 9 and up, but caution for kids: the initial premise begins with reference to the death of children and the guilt of the child who survived. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down.”
– Clay Stafford, author and founder of Killer Nashville
