Angelica Banks, the author of Finding Serendipity, is not one writer but two. Heather Rose and Danielle Wood are both award-winning authors of adult literary fiction and have been friends for years. While writing this book, they ate blueberry chocolate and a witch's broomstick and had lots of fun.
All the worlds are fully rendered and themes of imagination, courage, family, sacrifice, and friendship are beautifully explored. Fans of Edith Nesbit, Michael Ende's The Neverending Story (1979), and Roderick Townley's The Great Good Thing (2001) have a new home with Angelica Banks. --Booklist, starred review on A Week without Tuesday Banks's wondrously whimsical language helps transport readers into this imaginative world. . . . Creative young authors as well as fantasy lovers will enjoy this inventive book. --School Library Journal on A Week without Tuesday "A sparkling children's book debut in a novel that bridges and blurs reality and fantasty . . . With cinematic imagery and keen wit, the authors construct an inventive novel that raises intriguing questions about the relationship between authors and their characters, and reaches 'The End' all too soon." --Publishers Weekly, starred review on Finding Serendipity "This enchanting story (which may remind readers of the fully imagined worlds created by Edith Nesbit) celebrates the imagination and the connection writers feel with their stories. Spunky characters; spot-on pacing, providing perfectly timed plot revelations; and fully imagined worlds make this a charming winner for curling up with a good book or classroom read-alouds." --Booklist, starred review on Finding Serendipity "An original, wholehearted affirmation of the written word and the imagination." --Kirkus Reviews on Finding Serendipity "Banks's story is magically whimsical and filled with adventurous twists that will keep readers turning the pages." --School Library Journal on Finding Serendipity
