Minno

James Barlog Young Adult Heat Rating: 1

It isn’t easy being 13 ... And being raised by your grandfather ... and having a name like Minno ... and then having to journey through a strange land to rescue your parents. But Minno is doing the best she can. For all her young life Minno believed her parents were dead. Then she learns they’re alive, but they’re in grave danger. Her friend Hailey thought she was having a sleepover at her friend’s house. Now she’s Minno’s ally and partner on their incredible quest.

Review: Minno is a fast-paced magical read filled with adventure. Believing that her parents are dead, Minno finds out otherwise, setting the stage for her journey, one packed with new creatures, a new world, and a new friendship. I enjoyed reading the friendship building between Hailey and Minno and how it was put to the test. There were laughable moments which only added to the enjoyment of the book, drawing me further into Minno’s new world. The world created by the author was unique, and vibrant. Most impressive for this reader, was the cast of creatures dreamt up by the author. I felt like I was in Wonderland! Readers of all ages who enjoy fantasy, adventure, and magical realms would enjoy Minno, but those looking for a great young reader, Minno is a sure bet. | Reviewer: Sasha Hibbs |
