Rating: 4 Stars
Release Date: July 9, 2019
Format: Audiobook (library)
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers

An amazing novel with a passionate heroine! I really liked seeing how Maia developed through the course of the novel. Her relationship with Edan is unique and beautiful. Kim Mai Guest is a dedicated narrator, whose lyrical voice brought the story to life. It has elements of both the stories of Aladdin and Mulan. I think the romance was a bit heavy in this story, I would have liked the story a bit more if it was focused on Maia’s inner strength and determination. She has overcome so much, so I think a full-circle moment where she came to that realization would have been cool.
