Description

The School That Ate Children by Sara General draws on the author's Mohawk cultural traditions and history. Set in contemporary time two sisters, Maple and Eva, have experiences that have caused them extreme heartbreak. But when a kid at school bullies Eva, she takes drastic measures and signs a magical contract with a powerful witch who promises her a lifetime of freedom from pain. Little does she know, she will be giving up everything she loves, including her friends, family, and memories. Horrified by the witch's duplicity, Maple sets out on a mission to free her sister. Aided by a shape shifting dog named Oakley, Maple's journey brings her into contact with Tricksters, Wizards, Stone Giants and Whirlwinds. But with every step she takes—time is running out. Can Maple save her sister before it's too late? Or will Eva be lost forever? Odadrihonyanisoh (Sara General) is Mohawk from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. She writes MG and YA speculative fiction (science fiction and fantasy), inspired by themes and events in Haudenosaunee history. This background is seamlessly woven into the compelling story that leaves the reader wanting more. Highly recommended.
