@writesinla shares a spectacular story set in a bright, gleaming city for this month’s theme of cities.
One more on our cities theme for #littlelitbookseries: PEASPROUT CHEN by Henry Lien! Peasprout and her little brother travel to the city of Pearl to attend Pearl Famous Academy of Skate and Sword, which is really a city itself, made from the pearl substance everyone skates around on. This truly original middle grade novel with martial arts/figure skating at its heart is full of adventure, intrigue, and self-discovery as the main character finds her way in a complicated, unfamiliar place. It’s a fantastic read by a fellow (and fantastic!) LA author. Published by Henry Holt & Co. Books for Young Readers.
