‘There are other ways to be mighty, you know. Not just world weaving. We got all sorts of other powers, ones that are just as magic. Slower, surer ways to change what’s around us. I’m talking about kindness. I’m talking about love. That’s what Ma was strong in.’Hush Quiet is a girl with an infinite baseball cap and certain views on love and kindness.
Her sister, Matilda, carries around a shotgun full of bees, and doesn’t need much excuse to fire it.
Hush and Matilda have been hiding out in a pocket world, ever since the war started. Ever since Dustbowl fell. Ever since what happened to Ma. But when a boy with no memory crosses into their reality, the sisters must confront their past, each other, and the intoxicating power that has torn their lives apart . . . the power known as worldweaving.
