Born as blank as canvas in a world brimming with colour and magic, Alice's pale skin and milk-white hair mark her as an outcast. Because, for the people of Ferenwood, colour and magic are one and the same. And since the disappearance of her beloved father, Alice is more determined than ever to prove herself and her own magical abilities.
To do so she'll have to travel into the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, with the help of a fiercely annoying boy named Oliver. But nothing in Furthermore is as it seems, and it will take all of Alice's wits to find her father and return him safely home.
Furthermore was everything I never expected and more. MORE. MORE.
This book was actually in the Middle Grade genre, and to be honest, I don’t really read MG books. But it was from TAHEREH MAFI and if you’ve read the Shatter Me trilogy, you would know that you should definitely read ALL HER BOOKS, MIDDLE GRADE OR NOT.
Furthermore is really REALLY CUTE and well-written. I actually fell in love with Tahereh’s writing at first page because it was really good. I feel that everyone should definitely read this book BECAUSE. IT. IS. AMAZING. Like, hello if you rate this below 3 stars, I will come at you with a whirring chainsaw, mark my words.
I fell in love with Alice at the start because she was just so freakin’ innocent and she wasn’t all emo and whiny about the fact that she was colorless. I mean, was she sad? YES. But was she whining about it 24/7? NOPE. She actually took it in stride. And the best thing about Alice was that she never had a horrible thought about anybody.
I honestly think that this was one of the best books I’ve read in 2016 so far, and damn right I’m gonna be pushing this book into everyone’s hands soon enough. Because y’all need to read it, ALICE IS SO WORTH IT.
