About this item
"The Incan empire's four-century ascendance has inspired plenty of nonfiction and over-the-top fantasy but perplexingly little historical fiction for kids. This recommended title can help fill that void."
"This quiet, deeply moving story reminds readers of the true nature of beauty."
--Publishers Weekly "A gripping story of a girl who transforms from a cowed outcast into a confident leader, this will find an audience among tweens and teens beginning to question what fate has in store for them."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
