The Newbery award-winning author’s newest book is a lush fairy tale of a book steeped in the mythology of the Philippines. The 12-year-old protagonist faces some dark and scary monsters and some equally monstrous men in her community, but persistence in spite of fear and honorable intentions guide her choices on an adventures reminiscent of a the movies “Moana” and “Pan’s Labyrinth.” A great choice for fantasy and mythology fans ages 10-14.
