Even and Odd
by Sarah Beth Durst
a middle-grade fantasy novel
from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt / Clarion Books

Twelve-year-old Even and her sister Odd share magic on alternating days. When the border between the mundane world they live in and the magical land they were born in shuts abruptly, they must find a way to reunite their worlds -- with the help of a unicorn named Jeremy!

"Whimsical fun." -- Kirkus

"A cozy mystery for unicorn and magic lovers." -- School Library Journal

"Durst inserts a subtle message about the separation of families through closed borders.... [A] feel-good portal fantasy." -- Publishers Weekly
