Sierra Santiago paints beautiful murals in her Brooklyn neighborhood and expects nothing more during the upcoming summer than to paint and hang out with her friends. However, her carefree plans are cut short when she discovers the murals changing. She sees some faces weeping and others disappearing altogether. Sierra teams up with a new kid on the block, the sexy and equally artistically talented Robbie, to get to the bottom of it all. As they investigate what is happening to the murals, Sierra discovers she is a Shadowsaper, able to connect her art with the spirits of her ancestors. Sierra must now battle with a sinister foe who wants to take all of the Shadowshaper power by killing off all the others, which include most of Sierra’s family. This exciting fantasy will have you racing to the finish, as well as falling in love with the vivid Brooklyn setting and laughing at the comic relief from Sierra’s hilarious friends. Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older is not a story to miss!   (Oklahoma Intermediate Sequoyah Award, 2018)
