At first, Eventown seems ideal. It’s a town filled with perfectly ripe blueberries, fast-growing rosebushes, and the world’s tastiest ice cream. It’s just the right place for Elodee and her family to move to when they’re looking for a fresh start. But before long, Elodee realizes something is wrong. All the houses in Eventown look the same, and the books in the library are blank. Plus, that tasty ice cream only comes in three flavors. Strangest of all, no one questions any of this—no one but Elodee.
Author COREY ANN HAYDU (pictured) doesn’t shy away from tough topics in her books. Eventown is no exception. Haydu told TFK that the book is about the power of being vulnerable. “Being vulnerable is the bravest thing you can do,” she says. “Bravery comes from really showing yourself and opening up to others."
