Lisa McMann: Island of Silence (The Unwanteds #2)
Lisa McMann
New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann visits to share Island of Silence, the second book in her middle-grade dystopian series.

Following the events at the conclusion of The Unwanteds, the stark world of Quill and the magical haven of Artime are now home to whoever wants to live there, whether they are Wanteds, Unwanteds, or Necessaries. In Artime, Alex Stowe and his friends hone their artistic magical spells until Mr. Today comes to them with a very special request—one they question their readiness for. And back in Quill, Aaron Stowe, Alex's twin, faces a very different path. Devastated by his loss of status after Justine's defeat, and seething with rage toward Alex, Aaron is stealthily planning his revenge, and his return to power.
