The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

The Wicker King is a strange, mixed-media book that is sure to be a polarizing addition to our collection. It follows two best friends as one uncovers a fantasy kingdom and a dark quest that may or may not be a descent into madness. Told through traditional narrative as well as photos, music, and ephemera from the lives of the two boys this book is quite forward thinking and, to me, exciting to read. I really enjoyed the adventure these two take, and the planned sequel sounds exciting as well. Fans of LGBTQIA literature and realistic fantasy should find this book enjoyable.
