What's new?... In the Shadows by Kiersten White & Jim Di Bartolo


Hello there!
Well, I had an amazing new yesterday on my mail, and it's about Kiersten White's new book, which is not the typical book you use to read. 
In the Shadows isn't a graphic novel, it not an illustrated novel. The author said is something like Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
An it sounds really really amazing. Check it out!
Expected publication: April 29th 2014 by Scholastic Press 
Pre-order: Barnes & Noble

From the remarkable imagination of acclaimed artist Jim Di Bartolo and the exquisite pen of bestselling author Kiersten White comes a spellbinding story of love, mystery, and dark conspiracy, told in an alternating narrative of words and pictures.

Cora and Minnie are sisters living in a small, stifling town where strange and mysterious things occur. Their mother runs the local boarding house. Their father is gone. The woman up the hill may or may not be a witch.
Thomas and Charles are brothers who’ve been exiled to the boarding house so Thomas can tame his ways and Charles can fight an illness that is killing him with increasing speed. Their family history is one of sorrow and guilt. They think they can escape from it . . . but they can’t.

Arthur is also new to the boarding house. His fate is tied to that of Cora, Minnie, Thomas, and Charles. He knows what darkness circles them, but can’t say why, and doesn’t even know if they can be saved.  
Sinister forces are working in the shadows, manipulating fates and crafting conspiracies. The closer Cora, Minnie, Arthur, Thomas, and Charles get to the truth, the closer they get to harm. But the threat is much bigger than they can see. It is strangling the world.  
Until one of the boys decides he wants to save it.  

Told in an astonishing mix of art and words, IN THE SHADOWS collides past against future, love against evil, and hope against fear.  The result is both a mystery and a masterpiece.
