There is color in our world. You just have to know where to look.

 

There are winged horses that live in the mirrors of Briar Hill hospital. Only Emmaline can see them. It is her secret. When one of the horses, Foxfire, leaves the mirror-world and crosses into her own, Emmaline must collect colorful objects with which to protect her new friend from a dark and sinister force. But where can Emmaline find color when her world is filled with gray?

 

"Endearing characters, metaphors for life and death, and a slow revelation of the horrors of war give this slim novel a surprising amount of heft."

—Booklist, Starred Review

"This exquisite, beautifully illustrated middle-grade novel explodes with raw anguish, magic and hope, and readers will clutch it to their chests and not want to let go."

—Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

"Reminiscent of the Chronicles of Narnia, Elizabeth Goudge, or a child's version of Life of Pi. . . . Readers will love this to pieces."

 —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
