Natalie Whipple does an exceptional job in House of Ivy and Sorrow. When the curse that killed Josephine’s mother comes back to haunt her, she has to protect her best friends and maybe enemies too from the curse. She just can’t seem to have any sort of normal life, it’s all magic associated with the witch under the bridge, her grandmother and guardian. Since the curse showed up to haunt her life she also has to keep her closest, dearest friends safe and close. Can she save Willow’s End or will it be up to her enemy, maybe friend?
House of Ivy and Sorrow is a great book but can get pretty mature and scary quickly. I would would recommend it for 10 and up, if you are a good reader. The theme and look at society isn’t as unnerving as let’s say, the Hunger Games, but things in the book can give you nightmares. Overall I would recommend this book for young and old keeping in mind some of the unnerving thoughts.
