This was not a big reading month for me. We were really into watching the Olympics earlier this month. Then my Uncle passed on 4 seasons of Mad Men, so no reading for me!
Star Shard by Frederic S Durbin.
It takes place on this traveling market place that is actually a wagon as big as a small city. I thought that concept was fascinating.
The main character, Cimbril, is a slave who works on the wagon as a singer. Then a fae boy named Loric, is taken on as a slave, but he can't use his magic to escape because of the magic attached to the wagon. Through the Loric, Cimbril discovers her true ancestory.
I particularly liked Cimbril's cat Miwa and the race of creatures known as Strongarms.
It's a great work of fantasy fiction for middle grade schoolers.
