Most people believe the best way to forget someone is to throw them down a well. Or lock them in a room with eight keys, or bury them at a crossroad in the thirteenth hour. But they're wrong. The best way to forget someone is for them never to have existed in the first place.

Madame Marisol's Unreality House was where you brought people to make that happen.

When Tuesday wakes from sleep for the first time when she is sixteen, she opens her eyes to a world filled with wonder - and peril. Left with only a letter from the person she once was, Tuesday sets out to discover her past with the help of her charming and self-serving guide, Quintalion. Along the way she runs into a one-legged mercenary, flying cities, airships, and a blind librarian. But danger shadows her every move. The leader of the merciless daybreakers is hunting her, convinced that she killed the only woman he ever loved. Tuesday will need all her wits to survive long enough to find out who she is and her connection with the mysterious Book of Days: a book that holds untold power... 


What would you do if you woke up and had no idea who you were and the only clue is a letter you have written to yourself? This is what happens to Tuesday, and being a strong willed individual, she sets off with her guide, Quintalion, to find out who she really is.

So begins a journey through an extraordinary world, full of amazing characters, some friend, some foe, and a thoroughly entertaining adventure. And entwined through everything, is the mysterious Book of Days.

This is a fantastic new story to add to your fantasy collection and once you get to know Tuesday, you will be unable to put this book down, as she battles Daybreakers, visits floating cities and finds allies in the most unexpected places.

I highly recommend this to all your students who love fantasy, but it is probably best suited to girls Year 8 and up.
