Neverworld Wake is the perfect book for those of you who aren't quite ready to give up on those creepy October vibes. It's like Inception with a murder mystery and also GHOSTS (?). Much like the characters, you'll find yourself unable to escape this constantly-twisting tale until it's finally untangled. I couldn't put it down!
Caleb— From Neverworld Wake
A Chicago Public Library Best Book of the Year
"Neverworld Wake is a shape-shifting binge read . . . It's a 'clear your calendar' kind of one-day read, singular as both a psychological thriller and a new addition to Pessl's uncategorizable canon." --Melissa Albert, New York Times bestselling author of The Hazel World
"Beautifully creepy . . . .A mystery within a mystery." --The New York Times
"An altogether eerie, philosophically challenging exploration of the ways in which our actions have consequences . . . the kind of book you'll tear through and then want to talk about with everyone you know immediately after finishing." -- Nylon
"The first must-read of beach season." --Town & Country
"[A]sophisticated novel ... similar to Libba Bray's acclaimed Going Bovine."—VOYA, starred review
"Pessl (Special Topics in Calamity Physics) adeptly creates a compelling nightmare world while maintaining a foothold in realism. Thought-provoking and suspenseful." --PW
"Unpredictable, exciting, and emotionally wrenching." --SLJ
"Pessl manages to keep her first-person narrative moving forward while her characters are stuck in time. An eloquent and haunting tale." --Kirkus Reviews
"This novel has ambition to spare, and teens looking for something odd, atmospheric, and twisty will likely be enthralled." --Booklist
" . . . there's a broad range of readers who will find Neverworld a place in which to linger." --The Bulletin
“A dark and twisty tale brimming with psychological suspense.” —Bustle
