[Blog Tour] Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi

Book Description:
Tahereh Mafi brings readers on a dark and lush new adventure about a girl who is fated to wash the bodies of the dead in this companion to her bestselling Furthermore.
Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It's become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

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


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.

Overall I would give Whichwood 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
