Alice Hoffman is at her magical best in a new novel about loss and healing.When her family is lost in a terrible disaster, 15-yr-old Green is haunted by loss and by the past. Struggling to survive physically and emotionally in a place where nothing seems to grow and ashes are everywhere, Green retreats into the ruined realm of her garden. But in destroying her feelings, she also begins to destroy herself, erasing the girl she'd once been as she inks ravens into her skin. It is only through a series of mysterious encounters -- with a ghostly white dog and a mute boy -- that Green relearns the lessons of love and begins to heal as she tells her own story.

  • I finally found it again

    By Kat1146
    I read this book in middle school when I felt everything was falling apart. I’d check it out in the school library and read it over and over again. It helped me through so much and I’m forever thankful for stumbling upon it again several years later.
  • Relatable

    When I first read this book, I was in sixth grade. I was still coping with the death of my sister, and my mothers crippling alcoholism. Reading this book, was such an escape for me. I felt so drawn to Green, and so connected to her through our losses. Alice Hoffman unintentionally helped me through some of the darkest times in my life, and I will never be able to repay that generosity. If you need an escape, and are looking for someone/something to lean on, read this book. It is such a gem.
  • I stared at this dead tree with words on it

    It hurts so much. Of all the books i have read this is the most depressing story of all. The most suspense you will get is probably the part beginning( Sorry I don't want to spoil). I was excited to read a book assigned by my school but heck this story made me regret every single moment of that feeling. Read something worth while please.
  • Great book

  • One word: beautiful

    By MeMeMeJuliyaMeMeMe
    This book is so incredibly deep. It's undeniably one of the best books that I've ever read. My only concern is how much of an easy read it is for a YA fiction, but I can read it and reread it for a lifetime. I highly recommend it.
