Title: Wonders of the Invisible World

“Aidan Lockwood feels like he’s been asleep, with each day as hazy and unremarkable as the one before it. When is former best friend, Jarrod, moves back to town suddenly the veil begins to lift. What Aiden discovers is that his life is haunted by the stories and magic of his family.” So, this book is pretty hard to explain. It is mostly a story about family, forgiveness, and accepting that your parents are in fact humans. Well, also maybe witches. This book brilliantly blends magic and realism in a way that left my mind boggled and my heart full. It is well crafted, beautifully written, and entirely immersive; coupled with the fact that it is a Stonewall Award Winner means that this book will rank among my favorites for years to come.
