School Library Journal - 11/01/2023 Gr 5 Up—Twelve-year-old Ary Mossheart lives life like any fairy, but when her mother starts to get sick from mold, she must find a cure for her. She goes on a journey of self-discovery and understands that the past has played a big hand in events she's had to face. With the help of some friends and her courage, she undertakes an impossible task of finding a new path for her and her people, leading with empathy and strength. This coming-of-age story, perfect for middle graders, shows how kids have to live with the mistakes of previous generations. Ary learns to take a stand for change, even if that means others will not follow. VERDICT Flowing with imaginative characters against the odds of natural disasters, privileges, and past generational mistakes, this book will show young readers how empathy for others can make strong positive changes.—BreAnn Weeks - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
