Grey Howard has always detested the Chemists, the magicians-come-scientists who rule her small, closed-off western town. She has tried to stay unnoticed-or as unnoticed as a tall, strong girl can in a town of diminutive, underdeveloped citizens. Then her best friend, Whit, is caught by the Chemists' enforcers and suddenly risk taking is the only choice she has.
After retreating to her grandfather's shop, Grey finds herself cornered. And when she accidentally touches the old curio cabinet in the back of the store, she is whisked to a hidden world where porcelain and clockwork people are real. and where Grey may be able to find a key that could save Whit's life and end the Chemists' dark rule forever. Recommended for ages 15 and older.

About the Author
Evangeline Denmark cannot sing. The tragic discovery of this truth led to bouts of angst-ridden poetry writing in her teens, several ill-advised relationships with literary characters, and the compulsive creation of her own fictional worlds. Having found her true voice, Evangeline now writes fiction with hints of whimsy, glimmers of fantasy, and strokes of the supernatural.
Her debut novel, Curio, a young adult steampunk fantasy, released January 2016. She has also co-authored two children’s books, The Dragon and the Turtle and The Dragon and the Turtle Go on Safari (Waterbrook Press.)
Evangeline lives in Colorado in a house stuffed full of animals and creative people that would surely go to ruin were it not for the watchful eye of a cattle dog named Willie.
