Debut author Zimmerman blends Shakespeare and magic in the enthralling story of three friends confronted with a mysterious book and a curious spell. Thirteen-year-old Rosemary Rosie Bennett, named after a line from Hamlet (Theres Rosemary, thats for remembrance), and her friend Adam feel abandoned by Adams older sister, Shelby, whose attentions have turned to her boyfriend and play practice. Then the two find an old book hidden in a locked cupboard in Rosies house, which was once owned by legendary poet Constance Brooke. What they believe is Shakespeares false codex holds a powerful spell, one that creates void and nothing. Endangering Shelby, the two must figure out a way to reverse the spell before their memories of Shelby disappear forever. Their only hope is Constance, facing Alzheimers disease in a nursing home. Zimmerman peppers the novel with engaging teachers, cozy reading nooks, and soft-lit bookshelves, a welcoming reprieve against the distressing portrayal of Constances Alzheimers and Rosies abandonment by her father. Plays and lore of Shakespeare trickle through this expertly plotted novel, which will leaving lovers ofand newcomers tothe Bard wanting more. Ages 1014. (Dec.)
