A beautiful, engrossing coming-of-age story, which casually treads the line between myth and realism. Omakayas and her family are each interesting, unpredictable, and worth spending time with.

My 9-year-old daughter loves this book. I just listened to it with my 11-year-old son, and we enjoyed it quite a bit also. I hadn't realized until now that it was part of a series; I'll definitely seek out the others.
