Last year (2010), one of my favorite Middle Grade releases was The Shadows: The Books of Elsewhere by debut author Jacqueline West. When I finished the book, I was eagerly hoping that there would be more stories of Olive, her strange home, and some unusual friends. I was thrilled to find out that there would be a sequel. Spellbound: The Books of Elsewhere #2 will be released in July 2011. Just in case you are having trouble waiting, here is an interview with author Jacqueline West.
