Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan - ESSENTIAL

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan, 366 pgs, Jimmy Patterson Books, $19 

Language: PG (7 swears, 0 “F”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG; 



When rumors of Lei’s golden eyes reaches the king, she is taken from her home to the palace to be subject to the king’s every desire, no matter what it may be. During her stay, however, Lei breaks the rules and falls in love. When this romance combines with a plot that threatens the king, Lei must choose how far she is willing to go to be free. 

I liked this book. It was interesting to read and showed a lot about human desire. Mature Content is PG-13 because the girls are there to be concubines to the king and Lei is lesbian. Violence is PG because there is a battle as well as a treasonous plot.
