Fourteen-year-old Vega Jane lives in the village of Wormwood, where life is nasty, brutish, and short. Villagers have been told that there is nothing outside of Wormwood except for the Quag, a foul forest filled with terrifying beasts. No one comes, no one goes, and Wormwood has stayed this way for generations. Until Vega’s friend Quentin Herms disappears. Quentin leaves Vega a secret message hinting that there is a way out of Wormwood and something extraordinary lies on the other side. As Vega begins to investigate, she realizes that Wormwood is a village built on dangerous lies. And that powerful people are willing to kill in order to keep it that way. Soon Vega is careening down a path that will either lead straight to the truth…or straight into an early grave.

    Richard Paul Evans, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Michael Vey series

  • “This vividly described tale takes readers to an original fantasy world full of strange creatures, intriguing relationships, and long-lost secrets. Baldacci knows how to deliver thrills.”

    Brandon Mull, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fablehaven series

  • “What happens when an international bestselling crime novelist tries his hand at a youth fantasy? Well, in this case, success.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Best known for his adult crime novels, Baldacci makes a detour into middle-grade with this wildly fanciful and darkly intriguing tale of a girl forced to fight for her life as she investigates the secrets of her tiny community.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Barber narrates in a charming and vibrant voice that captures Vega’s personality and guides listeners through this magical world. Her soft delivery and English accent are inviting. She creates clear and distinguished voices for the characters that stand apart from Vega’s first-person perspective. Equally important, she balances timing, projection, and tone to create some fantastic moments of tension and excitement throughout the book.”
