Set in the wild untamed beauty of the Amazon, Sunkissed features a shape-shifter I have never seen before.

Sun Kissed reminded me how much I love reading young adult fiction! I enjoyed how different and diverse this coming-of-age story is; it has just the right balance of the lush magic and light innocence of youth tinged with the temptations and deceptive reality of what it means to grow up. You're in for irresistible scents & mind-pictures and equally irresistible shape shifters that are visions from a local Brazilian myth that the protagonist Sofi becomes mired in as she discovers herself.

I just re-read this book and it's as spell-binding as it was the first time! Coco weaves a beautiful tale of love and magic set in the rain forests of South America.
