Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on the graphic novel Spellbound: The Book of Elsewhere Vol. 2by Jacqueline West.
With no way into the house's magical paintings, and its three guardian cats reluctant to help, Olive's friend Morton is still trapped inside Elsewhere. So when Rutherford, the new oddball kid next door, mentions a grimoire - a spellbook - Olive feels a breathless tug of excitement. If she can find the McMartins' spellbook, maybe she can help Morton escape Elsewhere for good. Unless, that is, the book finds Olive first.
The house isn't the only one keeping secrets anymore. Mystery, magic, corruption, and betrayal abound (plus just enough laughs to take the edge off). You'll never guess what happens next in this thrilling, chilling second volume in the critically acclaimed series.
Obviously this is a sequel (I seem to be recommending a lot of those) of a book I got as an ARC at the ALA conference last summer. It was AWESOME! Seriously one of the best I got from the conference. Creepy and engaging it was amazing. When I saw that the sequel was finally coming out I actually squealed at my desk, not my proudest moment but I was overcome. Can't wait to get this book, and if anyone has a hook up to get the ARC of this PLEASE HELP A BLOGGER OUT AND SEND A COPY!!! I promise to send good karma your way.
Spellbound comes out July 12. Yay!
