Pre-Order the Telling Room's THE UNRAVELING

Print: A Bookstore is proud to be working with the Telling Room, in support of THE UNRAVELING, their new novel by Devin Gifford coming August 27!

How quickly the world unravels…

A blinded world is a panicked world in this debut dystopian thriller. Several months ago, a thick, mysterious fog overcame the world, causing mass unexplained disappearances. Now, after her mother’s disappearance and her brother’s death, everything around Willow Clarke is unraveling. Plunged into a world controlled by gripping fear, Will must question everything as she picks apart a poem that her brother died protecting. Danger follows her. An organization desperately clinging to power will do anything to keep Will from discovering its secrets. She fights to follow the clues laid out for her, and one thing becomes clear about this frayed society: There are no monsters; only the people who’d have you believe in them.
