Blog Tour: The Memory Trees by Kali Wallace Guest Post

Hey all! Welcome to my stop on the tour for the awesome book The Memory Trees! Let’s get started.

The Memory Trees

BOOK COVERby Kali Wallace
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release Date: October 10th 2017

Genre: Young Adult, Magical Realism, Fantasy, Paranormal
Synopsis:
The Memory Trees is a dark magical realism novel about a mysterious family legacy, a centuries-old feud, and a tragic loss that resurfaces when sixteen-year-old Sorrow returns to her mother’s family orchard for the summer.
Sorrow Lovegood’s life has been shaped by the stories of the women who came before her: brave, resilient women who settled long ago on a mercurial apple orchard in Vermont. The land has been passed down through generations, and Sorrow and her family take pride in its strange history. Their offbeat habits may be ridiculed by other townspeople—especially their neighbors, the Abrams family—but for the first eight years of her life, the orchard is Sorrow’s whole world.
Then one winter night everything changes. Sorrow’s sister Patience is tragically killed. Their mother suffers a mental breakdown. Sorrow is sent to live with her dad in Miami, away from the only home she’s ever known.
Now sixteen, Sorrow’s memories of her life in Vermont are maddeningly hazy; even the details of her sister’s death are unclear. She returns to the orchard for the summer, determined to learn more about her troubled childhood and the family she left eight years ago. Why has her mother kept her distance over the years? What actually happened the night Patience died? Is the orchard trying to tell her something, or is she just imagining things?

Dream Collaboration (who would you work with/why)

I would do anything — anything, up to and including sacrificing limbs and/or organs — to write a screenplay for the Laika stop-motion animation studio for one of their breathtakingly beautiful movies. It’s not a filmmaking style that fits all stories, but the stories they do tell — creepy, adventurous, slightly dark and a little odd, with humor too –is precisely the kind of story I love most. Call me, Laika! I’ve got ideas!
