Book Overview

A lush and mysterious fable, full of beauty, full of wonder.--Rebecca Stead, Newbery Medal-winning author of When You Reach Me

Newbery Medalist Erin Entrada Kelly's debut fantasy novel is a gorgeous, literary adventure about bravery, friendship, self-reliance, and the choice between accepting fate or forging your own path.

When Lalani Sarita's mother falls ill with an incurable disease, Lalani embarks on a dangerous journey across the sea in the hope of safeguarding her own future. Inspired by Filipino folklore, this engrossing fantasy is for readers who loved Grace Lin's Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and Disney's Moana.

Life is difficult on the island of Sanlagita. To the west looms a vengeful mountain, one that threatens to collapse and bury the village at any moment.

When Lalani Sarita's mother pricks her finger and falls ill, she gives twelve-year-old Lalani an impossible task--leave Sanlagita and find the riches of the legendary Mount Isa, which towers on an island to the north. But Read More chevron_right
