Liesl & Po Review
Published by HarperCollins on October 4th 2011, Liesl & Po by New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver with Kei Acedera as Illustrator is a magical book with dark great story and wondrous possibility. It’s a story about a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places.
The basic concept is a bit cliched –locked up girl, not knowing what to do with herself but reading her way out of situations and scheming about how to get out–, though, Liesl turned into so much more than that. She was strong, inquinstitive, funny, and creative. She was truly very strong, but also a bit nutty (which more than one character remarks upon).
Liesl & Po Summary
Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice—until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.
That same night, an alchemist’s apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable
Will’s mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
