Join The Ivy for a celebration of Laura Sibson’s latest YA novel, Edie in Between! Laura will be in conversation with Heather Harlan Warnack, director of development at Gilman School. Light refreshments and drinks will be served.
About the book: It’s been one year since Edie’s mother died. But her ghost has never left. According to her GG, it’s tradition that the dead of the Mitchell family linger with the living. It’s just as much a part of a Mitchell’s life as brewing healing remedies or talking to plants. But Edie, whose pain over losing her mother is still fresh, has no interest in her family’s legacy as local “witches.”
When her mother’s teenage journal tumbles into her life, her family’s mystical inheritance becomes once and for all too hard to ignore. It takes Edie on a scavenger hunt to find objects that once belonged to her mother, each one imbued with a different memory. Every time she touches one of these talismans, it whisks her to another entry inside the journal–where she watches her teenage mom mourn, love and hope just as Edie herself is now doing.
But as Edie discovers, there’s a dark secret behind her family’s practice that she’s unwittingly released. She’ll have to embrace–and master–the magic she’s always rejected…before it consumes her.
“An engaging offering with a light paranormal touch.”–Kirkus
Laura Sibson worked for years as a career counselor for undergraduates before getting her MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her first YA novel, The Art of Breaking Things, came out in 2019. When she’s not writing, counseling or drinking impossibly strong coffee, you can find her running miles around her home in Philadelphia, walking her dog or ingesting pop culture (along with great takeout) with her family.
