    I absolutely loathe middle grade books for the most part with the exception of a couple of books including Furthermore. I find them not gritty enough, however, I'm fine with like children's picture books. Yes, this book was dark... yeah darkly awesome. People need to calm down. Did anyone not read Scary Stories back in elementary school? That pretty much had cannibalism going down! Lol!

    I absolutely loathe middle grade books for the most part with the exception of a couple of books including Furthermore. I find them not gritty enough, however, I'm fine with like children's picture books. Yes, this book was dark... yeah darkly awesome. People need to calm down. Did anyone not read Scary Stories back in elementary school? That pretty much had cannibalism going down! Lol! I have an eight-year-old myself who has already read all the Harry Potter books, so I would have no problem with her reading this.

    I feel like kids that haven't had the best upbringing could also relate to the main character, because she has had a hard life herself. The struggle is displayed very well through Mafi's beautiful words. The originality and world is what had me captivated the entire book.

    My one request is dear God let their be a YA book or NA book on these characters!!

    Just like Furthermore, Whichwood is magical with lyrical writing that ensnares readers from beginning to end. Along with the lyrical writing, I loved the Persian fantasy elements interwoven throughout the novel. It's hard to find Persian fantasy elements done so well and I cherish this book dearly.

    Laylee, along with Alice and Oliver from Furthermore, go on a magical journey of self discovery. The world building was amazing and the characters were so relatable. I believe anyone would greatly enjoy this story. There are some dark elements but I believe it was handled well for a middle grade novel.

    This is a wonderful tale of friendship and self discovery. I believe all age groups will love Whichwood.

    LOOK AT THAT PRELIMINARY COVER ART!!!! AHHHHH!!!!!! I'm basically going to beg Penguin to get me any advanced copy that exists because I am DYING for this. I need more Tahereh in my life. I need this. Persian MC? YES PLS. The dark counterpart to Furthermore? YES PLS. UGGHHH I just want this so bad. I have a feeling it's gonna be a slam dunk bc of underlying messages about self love and maybe even politics

    WE GOT A TITLE!!! WHICHWOOD!!!! WHICH WOOD IS IT???? WE DON'T KNOW!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!!! SEPTEMBER 2017!!!! THIS IS THE ONLY LIGHT OF MY LIFE IN THE DARK, DISMAL TIME BEFORE US. THIS WILL SAVE ME FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. Okay genuinely I thought Furthermore was such a gorgeous and atmospheric book and I hope this one can deliver that as well <3 I was nervous going into Furthermore because I didn't know if it would be as good and as pretty as Shatter Me, but now I know that Tahereh can never let me down. Let's just hope she tours to Texas this year! I miss my woman :') <3

    So it's confirmed that this is middle grade in a "neighboring magical land" to Furthermore. Kinda dampens my excitement but I mean, come on. IT'S OUT IN 2017!!!! I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT 3,000 YEARS!!!!!!

    tahereh mafi has a way of making me relate to any character, no matter how fantastical or ridiculous or far fetched from reality their situation is. i can always bring back what she's saying into my own life. it's so important that books like these are being written for kids today.

    that would make it unsuitable for upper middle-grade readers (ages 10 to 14), but parents may wish to know about two scenes that are slightly graphic:
