Namesake: A Novel (The World of the Narrows #3) (Hardcover)
Spring 2021 Kids Indie Next List
“Namesake is a beautiful conclusion to the story begun in Fable. In Namesake, you get to see all the characters grow is such a perfect way. The descriptions are beautiful, and I loved diving below the sea with Fable again. In this book, we follow Fable as she tries to find her way back to the Marigold through new alliances as well as old and new enemies, but we don’t know who will come through to help her. I didn’t want this book to end.”
