Apothecary By: Maile Meloy
This was a very adventurous and fun book to read. Set in 1952 in the aftermath of World War 2 this book has a ton of interesting elements. I enjoyed how the characters decided to take things into their own hands, and try to solve the mysteries so that they could save help. I loved the magical elements, when they were able to escape by turning into birds. Great read. This book also won the E.B. White Read Aloud Award, and the story will continue in The Apprentices.
I purchased this book from Mostly Books a local book store.
