Description


A young boy escorts an elderly woman back to her childhood home where she plans to die in this funny and heartbreaking middle-grade novel.

Davy David, an orphan, lives by his wits in the dead-end town of Brownvale. When a stray dog named George turns Davy’s life upside down just days before Christmas, Davy sets in motion a chain of events that forces them to flee.

A mischievous wind blows the two of them to a boarded-up museum on the outskirts of town where they meet the elderly recluse, Miss Flint. She has planned one last adventure before her time is up and hires the reluctant Davy and George to escort her. As they travel, the most peculiar thing begins to happen—Miss Flint gets younger and younger with every mile, and her story unfolds along with it.

The Road to Ever After by Moira Young is magical and moving adventure about an unlikely friendship and an unforgettable journey.
