New York : Margaret K. McElderry,
IL 5-8, RL 6.7
mother is one of the Folk, tiny fairies who live their days hidden from
the mortals around them. What she doesn't know is that her father
was human. When she can't use her powers to vanish one day it's decided
by the Folk that they will be better off if they exchange her for a human
child - one that they can use as a slave. Moql has no choice and
when she next wakes, she's in a human home and has no memory of her previous
life. Her human parents give her the name Saaski, yet, as she grows
older, snatches of faded memory still haunt her dreams and the town, fearing
her differences, torments her. Saaski does her best fit in, but her
only true friend is Tam, a young orphan boy who watches the goats. Together,
they decide to undertake a perilous journey, one which may destroy Saaski's
only hope of ever being accepted, not only by the townspeople, but by the
Folk, as well. (Miranda J. Hawkins, firstname.lastname@example.org)
