Fans of Coraline, Doll Bones and The Night Gardener will devour this award winning dark fantasy about twelve-year-old Emmeline who is desperate to save the only friend she has … her own shadow. But what happens when her shadow starts craving a life of its own?

A Texas Bluebonnet Nominee

Emmeline's gift to control and manipulate shadows makes her the subject of mockery…and fear. Forbidden to leave home by her parents, Emmeline's closest confidant is her own shadow, Dar. When a noble stranger visits and offers her parents a cure, Emmeline is terrified of losing her power—and her only friend. So Dar proposes a deal: she will change the noble's mind if Emmeline will help her become flesh.

When the man ends up in a coma, Emmeline is stunned—and blamed. Now forced to flee, her only hope of clearing her name is to find a way to give the shadow she's no longer sure she can trust what it craves—life.

With the gripping feel of a new classic, award winning Shadow Weaver will enthrall middle school readers who love fantasy, magic, and danger. Perfect for 5th grade and above.
