The Way Past Winter by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
When Mila's brother, along with all the neighboring village lads, is stolen away in the night by a mysterious bear man she is not content to stay home and mourn with the other women. She sets out on a journey to retrieve her brother accompanied by her adoring little sister and an outcast named Rune. Their journey echoes many of the tropes and trials of traditional Slavic and Nordic folk tales but is told in a realistic and fresh style. Mila's world is both beautiful and eerie. Though it is very enjoyable to explore this world alongside our heroes, you will find yourself holding your breath and hoping for their safety more than once!Emilie
