Furthermore review

Updated: Jun 2, 2023

My review of "Furthermore" by Tahereh Mafi. Magic runs throughout this amazing story. The author's style of writing is magical in itself. A girl who's never fit in must go on a dangerous journey to rescue her father with an enemy turned traveling companion. Although the ending felt a little abrupt, the trip there was worth it. Loved it.

Read a book. Have an adventure!
