Review: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

The Strange and Beautiful  Sorrows of Ava Lavender
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m such a sucker for a good family saga, and even moreso if it involves magical realism. I am not sure why the publisher saw fit to categorize this as YA, except that Ava is, for the bulk of the story, a 15-year-old girl, but I think The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender transcends its categorization and would appeal to readers of many ages. It is indeed beautiful and strange, but more than that, it’s magical.
