Secrets of Worry Dolls

According to Mayan tradition, if you whisper your troubles to the Worry Dolls, they will do the worrying instead of you--therefore, it follows that Worry Dolls are the keepers of a great many secrets . . .

On the eve of the end of the world--according to the Mayan calendar--Mari Guarez Roselli's secrets are being unraveled by her daughter, Lu.

Lu's worry dolls are at-capacity as she tries to outrun the ghosts from her past--including loved ones stolen on 9/11--by traveling through her mother's homeland of Guatemala, to discover the painful reasons behind her own dysfunctional childhood, and why she must trust in the magic of the legend.


“[A] story of redemption and rebirth in the midst of loss. Author Impellizzeri creates a haunting story of the past that can bind and the courage to break free.” -Booklist


“Secrets of Worry Dolls finds its way to an earned ending true to its characters, and to the world events that exact influence on them. Impellizzeri does well with the small details that make her characters feel like real people.
This is a strong and memorable work of fiction.”
-Foreword Reviews

“Complex layers…fast-paced…a novel of grief, love, and truth.” –Kirkus Reviews
