Audrey | 13 comments I read this book a while back, maybe around 2010, so my memory's a bit spotty.

From what I recall, it was a YA book or book for youth centered around a college-age girl in the real world. She visited a college (I believe it was Stanford?) and strange things started happening to her.

There was some plotline surrounding her mother and over the course of the book she learned about a fantasy world that she didn't previously know of and that somehow involved her and her mother. I seem to recall there were spooky bits about other students acting strange (or had strange abilities), and there was a lot of description of vines/ivy/plants in relation to the main character. ((Potentially statuary coming to life as well?))

I seem to remember the narrator being somewhat unreliable.

I realize this is vague, but hopefully it rings a bell with someone. Thank you!

SBC (essbeecee) | 856 comments Could it be Tam Lin by Pamela Dean?

Audrey | 13 comments I think it could be, yes! I'd have to reread to be 100% sure, but the concept sounds right. Thanks!

You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This pushes your thread back to the top of the folder instead of languishing here on page 220 from seven months ago where fewer eyes will see it. Get back in the game! Bump!
You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
Good luck!
