A smooth-reading novel packing a lot of YA wisdom, “Moa” is a good read, and a fast-paced one. In concise strokes, author Tricia Stewart Shiu paints her characters and arranges her settings and plots. Suspension of disbelief is easy and quick, and the reader settles into expecting, and then receiving, out-of-the-ordinary events and encounters. Is Hillary a witch, or isn’t she? Does her nemesis, the high school bully, level evil curses, or not? Can shirts animate? Do ancient native spirits exist? More importantly, can one young lady save all?

Read on and see, and you will find yourself reaching the end and wanting to start back at the beginning all over again. “Moa” is a recommended book for both YA and adult readers who enjoy good writing, plotting and characterization, a story that impels, and enough paranormal adventures and misadventures to keep the reader on the edge till it’s over.
