Have You Read: Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick


Sedgwick’s 2014 Printz Award-winning novel is evocative, ethereal, and enchanting.

9781250040077On a remote northern island where no one ages and no children are born, what is unknown feels familiar and what is known is forgotten. In this mysterious land, two strangers meet, but not for the first time. Their journey back to each other began lifetimes ago, and is about to come to an end.

Midwinterblood is a chilling love story that will have readers burrowing deep under the blankets to stay warm, from the first page to the last sentence and beyond.

I recommend Midwinterblood (Roaring Brook-Macmillan, 2013) for ages 15 and up. Like many of Sedgwick’s novels, it has adult crossover potential. Don’t believe me? See the New York Times review by author Eoin Colfer.
