Young Alanna of Trebond’s first adventure kicks off an entire universe full of spunky heroines who are determined not to allow traditional roles or society’s opinions to get in the way of what they want to be. But if there’s one thing that Tamora Pierce teaches us it’s that the road to your dream is never smooth, even with the help of magic and fabulous weaponry. Getting others to accept you is hard but sometimes the real fight is accepting yourself.
