"The lush descriptions of the dense, beautiful jungle and a South Asian-inspired kingdom that evokes Sri Lanka shine through. The elephant, in particular, is a delight. . . . A lush wilderness adventure story." --Kirkus Reviews

"Farook's debut is a perfect example of how to keep a novel action-packed while simultaneously developing characters and coloring the world. . . . Inspired by Farook's own early roots in Sri Lanka, the vibrant island-country setting is so lush you can practically picture the greenery and taste the tropical breadfruit. . . .lovers of animals and adventure are in for an entertaining ride." --Booklist

"One of the many delights of this novel is the sparkling description of Chaya's rural Sri Lankan village, including the many references to colorful fruits and trees. More rewarding is Chaya's growth. . . . A rich and joyful adventure story for those who enjoy daring escapades in a fairy-tale setting." --School Library Journal

"Filled with lush descriptions of the South Asia-inspired landscape and delicious food, debut author Farook weaves a fast-paced. . . adventure against a backdrop of political upheaval." --Publishers Weekly
