The Thickety J.A. White
HarperCollins Children’s Books is thrilled to publish THE THICKETY: THE WHISPERING TREES (Katherine Tegen Books; $16.99; Ages 10 & UP; 9780062257291), the second installment in J.A. White’s elegantly written and masterfully plotted middle grade series. The first book in the series The Thickety: A Path Begins, was selected for several “Best Summer Reading for Kids” lists including Washington Post’s Summer Book Club , Huffington Post’s “Summer Reading List for Kids” and the Christian Science Monitor’s “25 Best New Middle Grade Novels.” THE THICKETY series reads like a classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale told from the perspective of a young girl.

The Thickety has a setting that feels both familiar—a dark, enchanted forest from a fairytale—yet is wholly unique. Brilliantly imagined and filled with interesting creatures such as three-eyed birds, poisonous plants, and monstrous beings, The Thickety weaves all that is scary and strange with the power of familial love to create a fully-imagined world that highlights the strength of the good within all of us despite the evil that surrounds us.

After Kara Westfall’s village turns on her for practicing witchcraft, she and her brother, Taff, flee to the one place they know they won’t be followed: the Thickety. Only this time the Forest Demon, Sordyr, is intent on keeping them there. Sordyr is not the Thickety’s only danger: unknown magic lurks behind every twist and shadow of the path. And then Kara and Taff discover Mary Kettle, an infamous witch with an unspeakable past—she is everything their village fears about magic.

When Mary shows them the path leading out of the Thickety guarded by Imogen, a creature more monster than human, Kara is hesitant to trust her. But then she offers to help Kara learn to cast magic without a grimoire…and this could be Kara and Taff's only chance to escape.

Or the first step down a dark and wicked path.
