Product description

A long time ago, a witch burst into flames. A pirate and a mermaid fell in love. A map was marked with a glowing X. And a Republic was born. In the present day, two girls are given a history assignment: to try and piece together the rise and fall of the famous and corrupt pirate Republic, which once formed their island home. As Reggie and Maeve sift fact from fiction, they realise that everything they’ve been told about the Republic is wrong. That the problem with history being told by the victors is that a lot gets left out. That ancient legend might be uncomfortably close to home. As their tentative friendship deepens into something more, they realise that a magical world could be on their very doorstep – if only they could find the map…

  • Blending high-seas swashbuckling adventure, lyrical poetry and contemporary romance
  • THE MAP THAT LED TO YOU is another genre-defying, intoxicatingly rich tale of myth and magic from RAPUNZELLA author Ella McLeod
  • Perfect for fans of Elizabeth Acevedo, Dean Atta and Kalynn Bayron.
“Ella Mcelod is a stunning talent. This lyrical adventure story combines high seas adventures and a sweeping mythology, with piercing moments of truth. The experiences of growing up, of feeling different, of longing to find your place in a world determined to keep you in a box are explored with stunning clarity, alongside a swashbuckling adventure that will make you gasp out loud. And it has mermaids!” – Esmie Jikiemi-Pearson “Ambitious and genre-defying, THE MAP THAT LED TO YOU, is richly magical, heartfelt, and powerful. No one writes quite like the incredible Ella McCloud!” – Rosie Talbot
