Turns out he's Mr. Charles, her dad's new boss at the oil and gas company, and he's alarmingly interested in Nizhoni and her brother, Mac, their Navajo heritage, and the legend of the Hero Twins.

Roberto I think it won't take so long for a cover.
Genevieve This is about Navajo stories (the Native Nation from the SW United States.) A lot of Navajo (Dine') people get asked if they are Japanese.

* I got this book for review form the publisher for my honest thoughts*

I really enjoyed this read. I think this book did a prefect job of exploring a new myth system but still used the tired and true riordan format that works so well. I loved the fact that the lead character in this story was female and really loved her point of view. I thought the myths we were exposed to was super compelling and I really loved learning about them. I also loved how this story also developed a trio of characters

I received this ARC at Book Expo.

I'm always impressed by the books in Rick Riordan's imprint, and this one is exceptional.

The main character shows grit and determination, yet she's willing to sacrifice her own needs to help others. As I was reading this, I was thinking (besides ordering one for my library's collection) which kid of my acquaintance will get this book as a birthday
