A middle-grade fantasy about a girl who sets off on a journey to find her missing cousin and gets transported to an island world filled with Dominican myths and legends.

  • Full of Dominican culture, myths, and legends that have rarely been seen in middle-grade fiction, including butterfly shape-shifters, flying coconut-shaped demons, and magic fueled by memories and a connection to the Island.
  • Not only does this book explore Dominican myths and legends, it also explores the deep, often painful history of the Dominican Republic and the Trujillo regime. A powerful author’s note in the backmatter speaks to this history.
  • Julian Randall is a critically-acclaimed writer and poet who contributed to the #1 New York Times-bestselling Black Boy Joy.
  • Pilar’s witty, humorous voice lends itself perfectly to this fast-paced page turner, and is sure to attract fans of The Storm Runner and Artemis Fowl.
