Just in time for holiday shopping, the All But True series returns with two authors who specialize in magical thrillers for young adults.
In Nova Ren Suma’s A Room Away from the Wolves, Bina is on the road, with an old suitcase, a black eye, and a humming sense of betrayal. She’s fleeing trouble at home including two hostile stepsisters, and heading for a young women’s residence in Greenwich Village. But Catherine House has its own tragic history and dark, magical secrets, and once there, Bina must struggle to untangle the truths and lies of her own past. Heart-pounding and atmospheric, this is an updated gothic ghost story from a #1 New York Times bestselling author.
