about

When things go bad at home, sisters Eleanor and Mike hide in a secret place under Eleanor’s bed, telling monster stories. Often, it seems those stories and their mother’s house magic are all that keep them safe from both busybodies and their dad’s temper. But when their father breaks a family heirloom, a glass witch ball, a river suddenly appears beneath the bed, and Eleanor and Mike fall into a world where dreams are born, nightmares struggle to break into the real world, and secrets have big consequences. Full of both adventure and heart, Riverland is a story about the bond between two sisters and how they must make their own magic to protect each other and save the ones they love.
 
Fran Wilde is the award-winning author of the Bone Universe trilogy, which won the Andre Norton Award and the Compton Crook Award. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband, daughter, dog, and a LOUD parakeet.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mini review on GR! Mini review: Trigger warning: Mention of bad temper regarding the MCs father. Up till the point I read. DNF I received this E-ARC via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was really looking forward to reading this book! Unfortunately I didn’t like it. To put it simply I started losing interest while reading. I couldn’t wrap my head around the beginning and while I wanted to read more, I couldn’t bring myself to. I still recommend.

Editorial Reviews

"Wilde concocts a heartbreakingly anxious story as Eleanor walks on eggshells to protect herself and her sister from their abusive parents . . . The lens of house magic for physical and emotional abuse acts as a buffer, allows the story to avoid a preachy tone while still accurately depicting the hurdles a child in a stifling household must face."
