Synopsis

**New edition includes bonus short story, "Right," by Raspberry L. Granby**

“A cool breeze blew up the hill from the forest, and with it, something like a song. Just the tease of a melody that curled around a single word, a question.
Home?"

Though her father tries to paint their sudden move to her aunt’s hill house as a grand adventure, Raspberry Lynette Granby knows the truth: with his cancer progressing and her mother long gone, he’s preparing his sister to become Berry’s caregiver. So she escapes, first into the familiar – books, and then into the unfamiliar – a storybook forest at the bottom of the hill. There she meets a mysterious girl who is something out of a fairytale herself – and not necessarily the happy-ending kind. Equally intrigued and frightened by the strange magic of the forest, Berry finds herself caught between wanting to forget, and hoping for a miracle.
