Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver
Liesl's only friends are shadows until the night a ghost named Po emerges from the darkness. That very night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something far less remarkable. Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
