Product description


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

“With lyricism and elegance, Erin Entrada Kelly weaves a rich tale. Powerful and gripping.” -- Soman Chainani, author of The School for Good and Evil series

“Unlikely but determined heroine Lalani is lovably loyal, kind-hearted, and optimistic even as she faces unspeakable dangers, and her relentless spirit makes her a worthy protagonist in this triumphant tale about fighting for the people one loves and staying true to oneself.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Newbery Medalist Kelly writes a heroic fantasy about making choices, going on a quest, and conquering evil. Scattered throughout the novel are short, beautifully illustrated second-person vignettes allowing readers to imagine they are the mythical creatures Lalani encounters . . . Fast-paced and full of wonder, this is a powerful, gripping must-read.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Inspired by Filipino folklore, Newbery Award̶winner Kelly has woven her narrative with a mythology that is rich and delicious. . . . Readers will be cheering for Lalani in her unlikely quest to save her family and friends, using only the power of her wits, courage, and empathy.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“Beautifully rendered . . . A journey illustrating the importance of story and the power of faith and hope.”
-- School Library Journal (starred review)

“Brimming with injustice, beauty, pain and wonder . . . A fluid, intentional novel grounded strongly in emotional reality and overflowing with the fantastic. Absolutely bewitching.” -- Shelf Awareness (starred review)

“Fans of Lin’s Where the Mountain Meets the Moon will be enthralled.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Kelly turns from the contemporary realistic settings of the Newbery–winning Hello, Universe and of You Go First to a tropical island–set fantasy world. . . . An excellent job of world-building.”  -- Horn Book (starred review) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

Sometimes you choose yourself.

Lalani Sarita faces an impossible future. Her mother has fallen ill and is unlikely to recover. Drum and Kul--her stepfather and stepbrother--are cruel and vindictive overlords. There is only cleaning and cooking and mending and errands--for someone such as Lalani, life on Sanlagita involves little else.

Lalani Sarita faces an impossible task.She only wanted to save Toppi. She only wanted to help her best friend, Veyda. But everything is her fault. Everything. The rain--coming now in torrents and causing unspeakable disaster--is all her fault.

So Lalani does what only one girl on the island of Sanlagita has ever done before. She slips into a small scouting boat and sets out across the Veiled Sea, looking for a different future. That other girl never returned. Will Lalani?

Sometimes you choose yourself.

--Shelf Awareness (starred review) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
