      Moralin has learned to fight, despite this being against the traditions. But on the eve of the rite of her initiation into full adulthood, she takes a foolish risk and falls into the hands of her tribe's enemies. Now, captured and brought back with them, she turns her mind to escape and how she might return home.Both the official summary (and mine) don't do a great job of summing up what this book is about. In my case, because I'm still not entirely sure where it was going or what it was trying [...]

      A YA fantasy that really tries to immerse you into a culture that's not your usual Euro-based fantasy. It's often slow, and oddly paced when not; for example, it opens during a bout of combat, which turns out to be a ritualistic duel, after which we can all go home.

      I picked this up at a library sale thinking I would send it up to my niece. I found it confusing and slow-going. I don't think it will hold her interst. It addresses many issues that are taking place in Africa--child obduction, tribal disputes, children work forces, child soldiers. But, the references are a bit vague, so I think it would take some discussion to help a young reader make the connections. I would def. suggest a parent read this first to help a young reader through it.

      The plot was a pretty neat idea, and I liked the world that was created, but I somehow didn't really care about any of the characters?

      Would have been a great book had it not been so unsteady in the plot line and confusing.
