From her birth, Abisina has been outcast–for the color of her eyes and skin, and for her lack of a father. Only her mother’s status as the village healer has kept her safe. But when a mythic leader arrives, Abisina’s life is ripped apart. She escapes alone to try to find the father and the home she has never known. In a world of extremes, from the deepest prejudice to the greatest bonds of duty and loyalty, Abisina must find her own way and decide where her true hope lies.
Another book I never finished and the only reason I can say why I didn’t is just that I put it down and never picked it back up.
This is a great middle grade, early high school book. I believe it’s being used in some curriculums because I saw some discussion questions somewhere.
The details of this story were amazing. It’s like a mini-epic adventure reminiscent to Lord of the Rings with less scary. At least to the part that I read up to, which was about half way through.
I’d like to pass this on so if you’re interested please fill out the below form by August 8th. Shipping to the US only.
