The Hazel Wood (The Hazel Wood #1) by Melissa Albert
A sweet little girl named Alice who is not more than 17 years of age, has spent most of her life, living on the streets along with her mother. Both of them believe that a strange kind of bad luck surrounds them, all the time. But, not everyone knows that Alice is the granddaughter of a very famous fairly tale author. She dies alone in the country home, she owns, called Hazel Wood (which is actually Alice’s). Her mother is nowhere to be seen. The person, who took her mother away, supposedly came from Hinterland, an imaginary land, where most of her grandmother’s stories were based. The only clue left for Alice to look for her mother, is left by her mother, only, which asks her to stay away from the Hazel Wood.
Alice always wanted to hide from her grandmother’s fans. But, no Alice, in the first place should be familiar with the Hazel Wood, only then, can she find another clue of her mother. Ashe should also know about her granny’s fictional stories- only then she might find out about her mother.
