Marie Lu's The Kingdom of Back is a historical fantasy featuring Nanerl--Mozart's older and often forgotten sister. Nanerl and her brother escape into a land they've created for themselves--a land full of faeries, upside down trees, and sonatas. The vibe I got while reading was very Hansel & Gretel--not all is as seems with the gingerbread house made of sweets. Marie Lu's illustrations of this magnificent world the two Mozart children have created is gorgeous! A dark, magical, and mysterious read. Definitely read this book--especially if you’re living in a constant state of escapism like I am.
