Hello, everyone!

SYNOPSIS:
Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

WHY AM I WAITING?
I’m really excited about this release! I loved “Furthermore” and gave it 5 stars. It was definetly one of my favorite reads of this year. I have high expectations for this one and knowing that it’s from Tahereh Mafi, I know I won’t be desapointed.

Furthermore: Novo Livro de Tahereh Mafi

fundo-branco1

Se você é fã da Tahereh Mafi, autora da trilogia Estilhaça-Me, como eu sou, já deve saber sobre seu novo livro e a recente revelação da capa. Não? Ok. Sem problemas!

Sinopse de Furthermore:

Há apenas três coisas importantes para Alice Alexis Queensmeadow, de 12 anos: sua mãe, que não sentiria sua falta; magia e cor, os quais parem escapar dela; e seu pai, que sempre a amou. No dia em que seu pai desapareceu de Ferenwood, ele levava consigo apenas uma régua. Já se passaram quase três anos e Alice está determinada a encontrá-lo. Ela o ama tanto quanto ama aventura, e está prestes a embarcar em um para encontrar o outro.
No entanto, trazer seu pai para casa não será tão fácil. Alice precisa viajar através da mística e perigosa Terra de Furthermore; onde para baixo pode ser para cima, papel está vivo e esquerda pode ser direita. Sua única companhia é um garoto chamado Oliver, cuja habilidade mágica é mentir e enganar – e com um mentiroso em uma terra onde nada é o que parece ser, requisitará de Alice toda sua concentração para encontrar seu pai e conseguir voltar para casa sã e salva. Em sua jornada, Alice precisa se encontrar- e se agarrar à magia do amor diante da perda.

A capa dos livros anteriores de Tahereh são estonteantes, e não poderia ser diferente com Furthermore. O design é incrível e nos mostra ainda mais o lado artístico da autora. Ela também fez um post em seu Tumblr, falando que outros livros do gênero Jovem Adulto estão a caminho, não apenas Infanto-Juvenis. O livro será publicado no dia 30 de agosto nos EUA, pela Dutton Books for Young Readers. Ainda sem data de lançamento no Brasil.

Sobre a Tahereh Mafi:

Ela nasceu em Connecticut, fala fluentemente oito línguas, é descendente de iranianos e Estilhaça-Me foi seu primeiro romance, lançado em 2011 nos EUA. A trilogia foi optada pela ABC e ganhará uma série de televisão.
Atualmente, é casada com o também autor, Ransom Riggs, de “O Orfanato da Srta. Peregrine Para Crianças Peculiares”, que terá filme lançado em breve.

Estilhaça-Me foi a primeira trilogia que li na vida e me apaixonei pela história e os personagens logo no começo (Team Warner). Quando eu terminei de ler todos os livros, já estava claro que eu leria qualquer coisa que Tahereh Mafi escrevesse no futuro, mesmo que fosse uma carta. Estou muito ansiosa para ler seu novo livro e espero que chegue logo ao Brasil!


If you’re a fan of Tahereh Mafi, author of the trilogy Shatter Me, as I am, you should already know about her new book and the recent revelation of the cover. No? Ok. No problem!

Synopsis of Furthermore:

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. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit—and with a liar by her side in land where nothing is as it seems, 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.

The cover of the previous books of Tahereh are stunning and it couldn’t be different with Furthermore. The design is incredible and it shows even more the artistic side of the author. She also made a post on her Tumblr saying that other Young Adult books are on the way, not only Middle Grade. The book will be published on August 30 by Dutton Books for Young Readers.

About Tahereh Mafi:

She was born in Connecticut, is fluent in eight languages, is descendant of Iranians and Shatter Me was her first novel, released in 2011. The trilogy has been optioned for television.
She’s married to the author Ransom Riggs who wrote “Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children”. The movie will be released this year.

Shatter Me was the first trilogy I’ve read in my life and I fell in love with the story and characters since the beginning (Team Warner). When I finished all the books it was clear that I would read anything Tahereh would write in the future, even if it was a letter. I am really excited to read her new book!
