The Apprentices

by

The Apprentices Cover

 

Staff Pick

The follow-up to Maile Meloy's first young-adult novel, "The Apothecary," The Apprentices picks up the adventure pretty much where it left off without missing a beat. It's two years later and Janie Scott is trying to put the pieces of her fragmented memory back together. It seemed like a dream, but so real! Meanwhile, Benjamin is on his own mission with his father halfway around the globe. Superbly written, The Apprentices is a fantasy adventure that still manages to seem plausible and realistic.

Publisher Comments:

It's 1954, and Janie Scott is in boarding school in New Hampshire, trying to make a new life. Two years have passed since she last saw the mysterious apothecary — or his defiant son, Benjamin. All she knows is that her friends are out there somewhere, trying to keep the world safe in an age of mounting atomic power. On the other side of the world, Benjamin is treating the wounded in a jungle war, and experimenting with a magical new formula that will let him communicate with Janie across the globe.

But Janie has her own experiment underway, and it's attracting interest from sinister forces. Benjamin calls on their friend Pip for help, and they have to race to find one another, and to unravel the mystery of their powerful new enemies.

A magical new adventure, following Maile Meloy's critically acclaimed novel The Apothecary, with captivating illustrations by Ian Schoenherr.
