Day’s YA – FINALE

Welcome, welcome to the last Day’s YA from New York City’s Flatiron Building!

We are saying goodbye to our beloved and historic digs, so it seemed appropriate that I share Stephanie Garber’s final chapter in her award-winning and bestselling Caraval series.

FINALE by Stephanie Garber
9781250157669
Available now from Flatiron Books YA
Ages 13 to 18

Stephanie Garber introduced readers to the enchanting and magical world of Caraval back in January 2017. In FINALE, Garber bids farewell to sisters Scarlett and Tella—the duo we eagerly followed as they learned about love, loss, trust, and fate. In this epic conclusion, major secrets are revealed—both about the sisters and their mother—that might have earth-shattering consequences.

Stephanie Garber has created an absolutely stunning conclusion to the Caraval Trilogy. Between the spectacular world, the enchanting cast of characters, and the astonishingly high stakes, good luck catching your breath! Because the story is told by both Scarlett and Tella, we are offered insight into their individual motivations—something we hadn’t experienced in earlier books.

The sequel to the New York Times bestselling and #1 IndieNext Pick CARAVAL, following Scarlett’s younger sister, Tella. After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.

“The pacing is impeccable, with urgency increasing to an almost breathless point as Tella runs from clue to clue, while bittersweet truths and devastating betrayals unfold.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

” . . . a tour de force of imagination.” —Kirkus readmoreremove
