The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Lesleye Walton

Magical realism at its best. I loved, loved, loved this book! A student told me I had to read it, and I can’t thank her enough. She loved the book so much that she contacted the author to thank her. Here is Leslye Walton’s greeting to her readers on her beautiful website:

Dear Reader! 

Once upon a time, there was a very strange  & imaginative little girl who grew into a very strange & imaginative adult–we were all disappointed by that. But then she used that strange imagination & became a writer.  

She had me at very strange & imaginative! Please note the feather bookmark another reader left in our copy. Who can resist a book that inspires such whimsy?

Contains mature content.
