About the Author

Marcus Sedgwick has always been fascinated with spirals, which occur throughout nature from the microscopic to the interstellar. Fundamentally elegant and mesmerizing, many cultures and individuals have ascribed a special meaning to the form. He is the author of more than a dozen books for young adults, including She Is Not Invisible, Midwinterblood, which won the 2014 Michael L. Printz Award, White Crow, and Revolver, a Printz Award Honor Book. He lives near Cambridge, England.


"Four short stories, thematically related by images of the spiral form that snakes its way through each to obsess a protagonist, flash across time in this thought-provoking collection." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books ". . . satisfyingly brain-teasing." --The Horn Book "* Sedgwick is one of the most sophisticated, thought-provoking voices in YA novels, and like his Printz winning Midwinterblood, this presents a story told in pieces over a span of centuries." --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW "* Like his Printz Award-winning Midwinterblood, the prolific Sedgwick's latest work consists of individual tales spanning centuries of time connected only by a single thread - in this case a shape; the spiral . . . At once prosaic and wondrously metaphysical, Sedgwick's novel will draw teens in and invite them to share in the awe-inspiring (and sometimes terrifying) order and mystery that surround us all." --School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW "* Similar to Sedgwick's Printz Award-winning Midwinterblood, four stories relate in elusive ways . . . this complex masterpiece is for sophisticated readers of any age. Haunting." --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW "Readers who like untangling puzzles will enjoy parsing the threads knitting together this corkscrew of tales." --Publishers Weekly "A tale for the ages, expertly spun and completely satisfying." --Eoin Colfer, New York Times Book Review on Midwinterblood "Its strange spell will capture you." --Booklist, starred review on Midwinterblood "The Time traveler's Wife meets Lost in this chilling exploration of love and memory." --Kirkus, starred review on Midwinterblood "A story that's simultaneously romantic, tragic, horrifying, and transcendental." --Publishers Weekly, starred review on Midwinterblood
