‘You are the Wordsmith now. Are you ready for the challenge?’
The city of Ark is the last safe place on Earth. To make sure humans avoid the mistakes of their past and are able to
survive, everyone in Ark must speak List, a language of only 500 words. Everyone, that is, except Letta.
As apprentice to the Wordsmith, Letta can read all the words that have ever existed. Words like freedom, music, and
even pineapple tell her about a world she’s never known. One day her master disappears and the leaders of Ark tell
Letta she is the new Wordsmith and must shorten List to fewer and fewer words. When Letta meets a mysterious boy
who somehow knows all the words that have been banned, she’s faced with a dangerous choice: sit idly by and watch
language slowly slip away or follow a stranger on a path to freedom … or banishment.
For lovers of language and protectors of words everywhere, this collection combines Patricia Forde’s award-winning novel The List with its equally thrilling sequel The Last Word.
