    Description'It doesn't matter. I have books, new books, and I can bear anything as long as there are books.' Fifteen-year-old Morwenna lives in Wales with her twin sister and a mother who spins dark magic for ill. One day, Mori and her mother fight a powerful, magical battle that kills her sister and leaves Mori crippled. Devastated, Mori flees to her long-lost father in England. Adrift, outcast at boarding school, Mori retreats into the worlds she knows best: her magic and her books. She works a spell to meet kindred souls and continues to devour every fantasy and science fiction novel she can lay her hands on. But danger lurks...She knows her mother is looking for her and that when she finds her, there will be no escape.

    Review quote
    " A wonder and a joy."--"The New York Times "" Compelling... Never deigning to transcend the genre to which it is clearly a love letter, this outstanding (and entirely teen-appropriate) tale draws its strength from a solid foundation of sense-of-wonder and what-if.""--Publishers Weekly", starred review " Beautifully crafted... "Among Others "calls to those who desire a wild, magical world in place of the one they have but eventually learn that their own lives are the greatest story of all." "--Bloomsbury Review "" There are the books you want to give all your friends, and there are the books you wish you could go back and give your younger self. And then there's the rare book, like Jo W alton's "Among Others", that's both."--io9.com "An utterly amazing and beautiful book." --"RT Book Reviews", Top Pick
