Melissa McLaughlinabout this book: West Branch is a place left oddly disconnected from a larger world which often leaves its residents a bit misshapen . . . slightly touched but left with little impression. Ivy May, a young resident of West Branch, feels as if she has been touched by the eerie hands of something else. A chance encounter with a rogue witch charts the beginning of a journey where Ivy finds herself bound by a mission to free an imprisoned warlock and fill a magical void in the Land of Wy.
In this adventure we come to find that the Land of Wy is a fascinating place abound with clairvoyant swamp whales, living rivers which power the land, and a people made of powder who perform ceremonial thirsting dances invoking giant trees to drink from the sky. It is a place where friends become flower girls and followers become giants. In this strange new land Ivy must learn to become a leader before she can become a woman - or a witch. She discovers that everyone must give up something to harness their own magic.
