Nomination: The Floating Islands

 

 

 

Neumeier, Rachel. The Floating Islands. 2011. 388 p. Alfred A. Knopf. 978-0-375-84705-9. Gr. 7-10.

Both male and female protagonists in this fantasy defy societal expectations to forge relationships and construct identities that reflect their personal dreams. Trei dreams of being a Kajuraihi and soaring through the sky, and Araené dreams of being a chef – a dream an Islander girl could never attain. They call upon their unique abilities and unite forces when The Floating Islands are attacked by the powerful and expansionist Tolounne. [ltp]
