This is a marvelous read for young adults. If you like contemporary YA fantasy with a magical outcome check out this title. This book is extremely well written with a very distinct voice. The author has managed to take an extraordinary adventure and wrap it around a very diverse character set. The story moved quickly as the main character discovers her magical heritage and goes through some serious challenges, growing stronger along the way, yet managing to stick to her core values.
The ending will make you want to stand up and cheer!!
This work is listed as a Young Adult Fantasy but had everything I like in a good book. Adventure, action, wonderful environments, great characters and splashes of humor. It held my attention throughout.
