Bestselling author Jay Asher and co-author Jessica Freeburg brilliantly reimagine the classic Pied Piper legend as a powerful story about loneliness, love, and vengeance. Long ago, in a small village in the middle of a deep, dark forest, there lived a lonely young girl named Maggie. Maggie is deaf and is shunned by her village because of this. Her only comfort comes from inventing stories and dreaming of one day finding her fairy-tale love. When Maggie meets the mysterious Piper, it seems that all her wishes are coming true. Spellbound, Maggie falls for him and plunges headfirst into his magical world. But as she grows closer to the Piper, Maggie discovers that he has a dark side...and an even darker past. Will the boy of Maggie's dreams end up being her worst nightmare? With striking illustrations from Eisner-nominated artist Jeff Stokely, Piper is an exciting new departure for Jay Asher that deftly touches on the same themes of truth, guilt, and redemption that made Thirteen Reasons Why a beloved bestseller.

Reviews

Gorgeously illustrated and lyrically paced, PIPER had me under its spell from the first page. A riveting and, at times, chilling response to one of the most fascinating legends that history and fairy tales have given us. --Marissa Meyer, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles and Renegades Jay Asher and Jessica Freeburg have conjured real magic with PIPER! Mysterious and weird, scary and yet charming, they've managed to take an old story and craft it into something beautiful and new! Highly recommended.--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin and Black Panther: Doomwar With an unfailingly honest touch, Piper unlocks the mystery and finds the heart of one of our most haunting legends. Asher, Freeburg, and Stokely find the emotional True North and leave their audience, including me, reaching for our Kleenex.
