Staff Recommendation

Rose Coffin by M.P. Kozlowsky

“In this Alice in Wonderland meets Coraline, middle-grade read, an unexpected hero learns the meaning of friendship and how the world changes when you find your voice.  
Rose Coffin is struggling. She's bullied at school, has a hard time feeling good about herself, and there's a lot going on at home. Her only strength seems to be her voice, often slipping into song to calm herself (although she gets bullied for this too). Rose retreats into the woods for a momentary escape from everything and finds herself whisked away by creatures from a different realm on a mission to save their magical world. Surprisingly, Rose might be the only one who can save them.  
Perfect for middle-schoolers trying to find their place and their voice.”

-Lindsay Robins, Community Engagement Librarian
