Old Man and the Sea (Hemingway)
PLUS for Honors American Literature
Parable of the Sower (Butler)
Sun Also Rises (Hemingway)
A gorgeous high-seas, queer, fantasy for teens! Florian, born Flora, is a young pirate trying to make enough money to escape to a safe place with her brother. Lady Evelyn Hasegawa is a high-born imperial shipped off to be a soldier's bride. Author, Maggie Tokuda-Hall is able to weave together stories of love, adventure, family, identity, and magic in a world overshadowed by a seemingly mighty colonial power. A tale worthy of the sea, her mermaids, and the witches, pirates, and soldiers who hunt the two lovers. - review by Jessica
