Description

The #1 "New York Times" bestselling fantasy novel for all ages by master storyteller David Baldacci -- now in paperback!

SHE WILL NOT BREAK
Vega Jane was always told no one could leave the town of Wormwood. She was told there was nothing outside but a forest filled with danger and death. And she always believed it -- until the night she saw Quentin Herms run away.
Vega knows Quentin didn't just leave -- he was chased. And he left behind a trail of clues that point to a dark conspiracy at the heart of Wormwood. To follow the clues will attract the attention of influential people willing to kill to keep their secrets. If Vega wants to stay safe, she just needs to keep her head down and her mouth shut. There's only one problem -- Vega Jane never walks away from a fight.
Master storyteller David Baldacci introduces an unforgettable heroine who must think fast, hit hard, and defy all odds to uncover the truth.

Review quote

"What happens when an international best-selling crime novelist tries his hand at a youth fantasy? Well, in this case, success." -- BOOKLIST, starred review "Best known for his adult crime novels, Baldacci makes a detour into middle-grade with this wildly fanciful and darkly intriguing tale of a girl forced to fight for her life as she investigates the secrets of her tiny community." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "This vividly described tale takes readers to an original fantasy world full of strange creatures, intriguing relationships, and long-lost secrets. Baldacci knows how to deliver thrills." -- Brandon Mull, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Fablehaven series "THE FINISHER is an enchanting romp through a fantastical world worthy of Rowling or Brooks. Baldacci proves that his pen can engage youth as well as adults." - Richard Paul Evans, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Michael Vey series
