Product Details


*”There is greed, danger, breathtaking adventure, and even humor and joy. . . . Readers will recognize [Donna] as a kindred spirit and root for her all the way to a satisfying conclusion. . . . A carefully constructed interweaving of reality and magic that will transport and delight.—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A dense emotional core, resonant voice, and themes of grief, shifting friendships, and family enliven Booraem’s contemporary fantasy, reminding readers that ‘hope is everywhere.'”—Publishers Weekly

“The mix of the fantastical and the practical gives this light, quickly paced fantasy its vitality . . . On the serious side is a family on the verge of collapse and a girl who feels she’s lost her best friend; on the playful, the colorful magic of pixies and the suspenseful action of a hand-to-hand fight with a baleful thunder mage.”—Horn Book

“Recommended for fans of Katherine Applegate’s Crenshaw who don’t mind a bit of off-the-wall chicken magic.”—School Library Journal
