This bookis a lovely adventure with an amazing heroine. Matica is a strong, brave girl, who battles with her handicap and how others view her. But thisisn’t a story only about her gaining acceptance or over coming herchallenges. Rather, it’s a tale packed full of exciting moments and tons of emotions. Matica comes across naturally as does the village andworld around her. It’s beautifully set and an easy landscape to diveinto.
The way the author revealed each situation is fun to read and it made one anxious to see what’s next. Acceptance was eloquently woven into the story without being blatant. And the other thing I learned was that when certain things happen, you don’t always know why and just maybe something goodwill come of it.
