Summerlost by Ally Condie 0399187219 9780399187216
Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


The first middle grade novel from internationally bestselling author Ally Condie comes to paperback.

Its the first real summer since the accident that killed Cedars father and younger brother, Ben. Cedar and whats left of her family are returning to the town of Iron Creek for the summer. Theyre just settling into their new house when a boy named Leo, dressed in costume, rides by on his bike. Intrigued, Cedar follows him to the renowned Summerlost theatre festival. Soon, she not only has a new friend in Leo and a job working concessions at the festival, she finds herself surrounded by mystery. The mystery of the tragic, too-short life of the Hollywood actress who haunts the halls of Summerlost. And the mystery of the strange gifts that keep appearing for Cedar.

Infused with emotion and rich with understanding, Summerlost is the touching new novel from Ally Condie, the international bestselling author of the Matched series that highlights the strength of family and personal resilience in the face of tragedy. Great for fans of Bridge to Terabithia and The Thing About Jellyfish.

"Kids are awesome. And they are diverse. There are children with different abilities and backgrounds and experiences, and every one of them deserves to find themselves in childrens literature and to know that they matter." -Ally Condie, on Summerlost
