The Apothecary on PW’s Best Books 2011 list

Hey! Publishers Weekly put The Apothecary on its list of Best Books 2011: Children’s Books...
Meloy’s first book for young readers is a wonderfully imagined alternate history, set as cold war tensions between the U.S. and Russia are reaching critical mass, and a secretive group of apothecaries conspires to protect the planet from all-out destruction. With magic, history, adventure, romance, and smart writing, it’s truly a story with something for everyone.
