The Secret Book of Flora Lea
by Patti Callahan Henry
Megan's Pick #2: Patti Callahan Henry is a master storyteller, and in THE SECRET BOOK OF FLORA LEA, she transports readers to WWII London, where sisters Hazel and Flora Lea are evacuated during The Blitz. They take comfort in their made-up world called Whisperwood. But then Flora goes missing, never to be found. Fast forward 20 years, Hazel comes across a story of Whisperwood in a book published in the U.S., shockingly similar to the story she and Flora Lea shared all those years ago. How can this be? Does this mean Flora Lea is still alive?
Look out for this highly anticipated, sweeping story about sisterhood and the power of storytelling this May!
