Description

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents critically acclaimed indigenous fantasy writer Rebecca Roanhorse's thrilling adventure about a Navajo girl who discovers she's a monsterslayer.

Lately, seventh grader Nizhoni Begay has been able to detect monsters, like that man in the fancy suit who was in the bleachers at her basketball game. Turns out he's Mr. Charles, her dad's new boss at the oil and gas company, and he's alarmingly interested in Nizhoni and her brother, Mac, their Navajo heritage, and the legend of the Hero Twins. Nizhoni knows he's a threat, but her father won't believe her.

When Dad disappears the next day, leaving behind a message that says Run!, the siblings and Nizhoni's best friend, Davery, are thrust into a rescue mission that can only be accomplished with the help of Diné Holy People, all disguised as quirky characters. Their aid will come at a price: the kids must pass a series of trials in which it seems like nature itself is out to kill them. If Nizhoni, Mac, and Davery can reach the House of the Sun, they will be outfitted with what they need to defeat the ancient monsters Mr. Charles has unleashed. But it will take more than weapons for Nizhoni to become the hero she was destined to be . . .

Timeless themes such as the importance of family and respect for the land resonate in this funny, fast-paced, and exciting quest adventure set in the American Southwest.

Fun and rich with myth
By: Farah Fakhirah

This was a really fun read! It was a story about a girl wanting to be a hero and wanting to be accepted by her peers. Nizhoni Bengay is a nobody on school, except that she can see monters, like a real monsters. So, when one of the monsters threaten to harms her community, friends, and family, she put a game plan of her own. But nobody seems to believe her, at least, until they were forced to fave the monster themselves. Rich in Navajo myth, this book is full of adventure and trials for Nizhoni and Mac, both continiously grows through the story, each trial they have prove that they are much more than they seem, and that to be a hero is to sacrifoce a lot of things. Both Nizhoni, Mac, and Davery, their friend make quite a team together. In the end, like Nizhoni said, being a hero is not being known to other people, but to people that matters to you
