Finley Hart is no stranger to secrets. There are her blue days, where it gets difficult to get out of bed. She keeps them a secret from her parents, who have enough to worry about. They’re trying to keep their marital problems a secret from her. The greatest are the secrets of her father’s estranged family, whom Finley has never met. Once. Ever.

But suddenly, this summer, she’s staying with them. And when she’s dropped off at her grandparents’, the secret world in Finley’s imagination comes to life in the woods behind their house. She introduces her cousins to the magical realm of the Everwood, where secrets live. But as they uncover the secrets of the Everwood, it’s the family’s secrets that threaten to come to light and change...everything.

Anyone who’s ever turned to fantasies and books as an escape will relate to this imaginative main character. Anyone who’s ever battled inner demons will relate to her struggle. Anyone who knows the strength of family bonds will recognize how relentless the Harts’ are. And everyone will appreciate the emotional payoff in this book full of heart (pun intended).
