Liesl & Po Book Trailer!


LIESL & PO, the middle-grade debut by New York Times and international bestselling author Lauren Oliver, will be available everywhere on Tuesday October 4th!

Lauren Oliver captivated readers with her groundbreaking first novel, BEFORE I FALL and her followup DELIRIUM was made an instant bestseller by teens the world over. Filled with intricate and beautiful illustrations from rising star Kei Acedera, LIESL & PO is an unforgettable Dickensian tale of ghosts and magic, friendship and homecoming.


Liesl & Po
by Lauren Oliver
Liesl’s cruel stepmother, Augusta, keeps her locked in her attic bedroom. Lonely and grieving for her recently deceased father, Liesl is surprised one evening by Po, a ghost who suddenly materializes in her room. The two become fast friends, and it is because of Po that Liesl is able to escape from her attic room and embark on a journey to bury her father’s ashes beside those of her mother. However, because of a mix-up at the undertaker’s, the box that Liesl carries does not contain her father’s ashes. Instead, it contains the most powerful magic in the world. And the alchemist who created that magic desperately wants it back.

  4. Aww, I ADORED Lauren Oliver's Delirium and, even though this isn't YA like I'm used to, now I really want to read this book! That trailer is beautiful and the synopsis sounds so awesome (because I'm a big fan of anything that has to do with alchemists!). :)
