Twelve-year-old Rosie Singer’s mom is missing whatever it is that makes mothers love their daughters, so Rosie has always turned to stories for comfort. Then, on the night Rosie decides to throw her stories away forever, an invisible ally helps her discover The Witch Hunter’s Guide to the Universe, a book that claims that all of the evil in the world stems from thirteen witches. One of these witches — the Memory Thief — holds an insidious power to steal our memories. And it is this witch who has cursed Rosie’s mother.
In her quest to save her mom, with her wild, loyal friend “Germ” by her side, Rosie will find the layers hidden under the reality she only thought she knew, where words are weapons against the darkness, and witch hunters are those brave enough to wield their imaginations in the face of the unthinkable. Perfect for fans of The Girl Who Drank the Moon, this fantastical and heartfelt first book in a new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson is a passionate argument that stories have the power to create meaningful change... and a reason to hope even when the world feels crushing. Rosie's story continues in The Sea of Always.
"With help from Germ and a ghost friend, Rosie must learn how her mother protected her as a baby and obtain a weapon to use against the witch. The will-they-grow-apart friendship storyline is handled with love and nuance.... A bighearted adventure." — Kirkus Reviews
