The Impossible Secret of Lillian Velvet

Jaclyn Moriarty



The Impossible Secret of Lillian Velvet

Lillian Velvet lives a quiet lonely life until on her tenth birthday her mean grandmother gives her a pickle jar full of golden coins. Incredibly, the coins whisk Lillian away into different places and times, and she meetes: the members of a lively family each in mortal danger; a boy with a skateboard; a girl who can Whisper and a small boy who desperately needs saving.

As a web of dark magic closes all around them, can Lillian find a way to help her new friends? And, more importantly, what will happen if she fails?
