Raven Speak by Diane Lee Wilson

Wilson, Diane Lee Raven Speak, 247 pgs. Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2010. Language - PG (1 swear, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence - PG-13; Asa is the cheiftain's daughter and the last of his children since her two brothers passed on. This winter has been long and hard, everyone is ready for summer. The food is just shy of gone, so Asa's father takes most of the men and goes on a journey overseas to try and find food. When your clan is dying, what will you give up to save them? This story is excellent. I love Asa; her leadership skills are unfailing because she is just and sacrificing. I loved the fact that when the "bad guy" was taken care of, there was still more to the story. MS, HS - ADVISABLE. Reviewer: CCH
