Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Lionel is a wild boy, who doesn't much like to be around other people. He'd rather be a purring cat or a wolf stalking the woods.
Marybeth is a nice girl. She doesn't need to be told to comb her hair or brush her teeth, and she's kind to everyone at the orphanage . . . Lionel most of all.
Different though they are, Lionel and Marybeth are best friends in a world that has forgotten about them. So when a mysterious blue spirit possesses Marybeth—and starts to take control—they know they must stop it before the real Marybeth fades away forever.
From New York Times bestselling author Lauren DeStefano comes a haunting tale of friendship, love, and the magic of childhood . . . and what lies beyond. Just right for readers of Serafina and the Black Cloak.
I absolutely loved Lauren DeStefano's middle grade debut A Curious Tale of the In-Between last year, and ever since then, I've been eagerly anticipating her next one: The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart. I can't wait to meet Lionel and Marybeth. I'm sure it will be a magical, mysterious, darkly charming, and heartwarming read!
And in the meantime, if you haven't read A Curious Tale of the In-Between, now is the perfect time while we count down the days for The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart!
