Tori Bovalino’s YA thriller was hidden all around the US thanks to book fairies today…
The Book Fairies of the USA are continuing our ‘Book Fairies with Pride’ celebrations with a YA gothic horror story! Who will spot a copy of Not Good For Maidens by Tori Bovalino today? Some have even been left in Salem, Massachusetts!
About the Book:
Salem’s Lot meets The Darkest Part of the Forest in this horror-fantasy retelling of Christina Rossetti’s “Goblin Market.”
Lou never believed in superstitions or magic–until her teenage aunt Neela is kidnapped to the goblin market.
The market is a place Lou has only read about–twisted streets, offerings of sweet fruits and incredible jewels. Everything–from the food and wares, to the goblins themselves–is a haunting temptation for any human who manages to find their way in.
Determined to save Neela, Lou learns songs and spells and tricks that will help her navigate this dangerous world and slip past a goblin’s defenses–but she only has three days to find Neela before the market disappears and her aunt becomes one of them forever.
If she isn’t careful, the market might just end up claiming her too.
Not lucky enough to find a copy?
