Description

Winner of a Coretta Scott King Author Honor
Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents Kwame Mbalia's epic fantasy, a middle grade American Gods set in a richly-imagined world populated with African American folk heroes and West African gods.

Seventh grader Tristan Strong feels anything but strong ever since he failed to save his best friend when they were in a bus accident together.
All he has left of Eddie is the journal his friend wrote stories in. Tristan is dreading the month he's going to spend on his grandparents' farm in Alabama, where he's being sent to heal from the tragedy.

But on his first night there, a sticky creature shows up in his bedroom and steals Eddie's notebook. Tristan chases after it--is that a doll?--and a tug-of-war ensues between them underneath a Bottle Tree. In a last attempt to wrestle the journal out of the creature's hands, Tristan punches the tree, accidentally ripping open a chasm into the MidPass, a volatile place with a burning sea, haunted bone ships, and iron monsters that are hunting the inhabitants of this world.

Tristan finds himself in the middle of a battle that has left Black American folk heroes John Henry and Brer Rabbit exhausted. In order to get back home, Tristan and these new allies will need to entice the god Anansi, the Weaver, to come out of hiding and seal the hole in the sky. But bartering with the trickster Anansi always comes at a price.

Can Tristan save this world before he loses more of the things he loves?

Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky
By: Dian Achdiani

Keluarga Strong seperti namanya, kuat-kuat, sering memenangkan kejuaraan tinju. Tetapi Tristan Strong justru kalah dalam pertandingan tinju perdananya. Belum lagi teman baiknya meninggal dunia. Saat libur kakek dan neneknya mengajak berlibur di rumah mereka. Tapi ternyata ada sesosok makhluk lengket mencuri jurnal Edy, mendiang teman Tristan. Jelas Tristan mengejarnya, sampai meninju langit dan membuatnya bolong. Penulis mendasarkan ceritanya pada mitologi American Black, dan tergabung ke dalam Rick Riordan Presents. Suka sekali pada ceritanya, pada humornya, pada komitmennya untuk menjadikan hero dari kalangannya sendiri. Sedang memesan sekuelnya via Periplus tentu saja
