Our story begins on a frosty night . . .

Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way) and she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days scrubbing the skins and souls of the dead in preparation for the afterlife. It's become easy to forget and easier still to ignore not only her ever-increasing loneliness, but the way her overworked hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appear, and Laylee's world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

Lush and enchanting, critically-acclaimed author Tahereh Mafi weaves together an all-new magical adventure in this dark, Persian fantasy, a companion to the New York Times bestselling Furthermore.

Unpopular opinion.... I didn't really care much for this book. The story was alright, the plot was okay and I didn't completely hate the characters. I liked the idea of it and I wanted to love it because I really liked furthermore. There really wasn't anything that completely pulled me into the story and kept me there. Overall for me it was just alright, it was kind of a let down because I didn't like as much as I hoped .
