The Worlds We Leave Behind is one of those incredible stories that is written on many levels. A good read for both middle grade kids and adults. Honestly, I cannot stop thinking about this story.
A.F. Harrold, the amazing English poet, has a magical way of connecting the reader with those gut feelings we all have, but find hard to describe. The story follows everyday kids in the real world who end up with a choice from a supernatural dimension… If someone wronged you and you could remove them from the world as though they never existed, would you? As intense as that question sounds the story is about so much more.
The Worlds We Leave Behind fully immerses the reader in Hex and Tommo’s world. The adventure is full of twists and turns – choices I never expected with an ending that will leave readers pondering their own lives.
Definitely an upper middle grade book. Think the X-Files meets Hansel and Gretel. This is another fabulous publication from Bloomsbury Children’s Books that is released in the UK first. If you want to read it now, you can get the Kindle edition or listen on Audible. The hardcover will be released in the US on February 21, 2023. This book is well worth a pre-order!
