The Wicker King is a psychological young adult thriller that follows two friends struggling as one spirals into madness.

Written in vivid micro-fiction with a stream-of-consciousness feel and multimedia elements, The Wicker King explores a codependent friendship fraught with madness, love, and darkness. 

When August learns that his best friend, Jack, shows signs of degenerative hallucinatory disorder, he is determined to help Jack cope. Jack’s vivid and long-term visions take the form of an elaborate fantasy world layered over our own—a world ruled by the Wicker King. As Jack leads them on a quest to fulfill a dark prophecy in this alternate world, even August begins to question what is real or not. 

August and Jack struggle to keep afloat as they teeter between fantasy and their own emotions. In the end, each must choose his own truth.

My thoughts:  This sounds incredible! And just the kind of story I love to lose myself in, with fantasy and friendship and madness and lots of bizarre atmosphere---there is nothing as intriguing as a character "beginning to question what is real or not". :)  Excited for this one, and excited to see what else is to come from this new imprint of Macmillan!

What book are you eagerly anticipating this week?
