Spark by Sarah Beth Durst
I’ve read several of Ms. Durst’s books which are listed below. I have enjoyed everyone of them. I particularly like this one as it is a youth focused book. Mina is quiet and has not found her voice. She and Pixit, her lightning dragon discover that their idyllic existence may be based on the suffering of others.
Durst does a super job expressing the unease and insecurities of a young girl. Many children feel inadequate or up to their tasks. Durst shows that reticence and quietness are not shortcomings but just traits. Traits that do not have to define your existence. In the book she shows Mina’s growth and how you can maintain your identity and break out of your shell simultaneously.
Mina’s care for not only those like her but for those who seem totally foreign demonstrates that accepting others, hearing their voices and acting in support of their needs is exemplary.
This is a good book to read, regardless of your age.
I highly recommend.
