But you'd never know it by looking at her.To keep the family safe, Min's mother insists that none of them use any fox-magic, such as Charm or shape-shifting. They must appear human at all times.Min feels hemmed in by the household rules and resents the endless chores, the cousins who crowd her, and the aunties who judge her. She would like nothing more than to escape Jinju, her neglected, dust-ridden, and impoverished planet. She's counting the days until she can follow her older brother, Jun, into the Space Forces and see more of the Thousand Worlds.When word arrives that Jun is suspected of leaving his post to go in search of the Dragon Pearl, Min knows that something is wrong.

She decides to run away to find him and clear his name.Min's quest will have her meeting gamblers, pirates, and vengeful ghosts. It will involve deception, lies, and sabotage. She will be forced to use more fox-magic than ever before, and to rely on all of her cleverness and bravery. The outcome may not be what she had hoped, but it has the potential to exceed her wildest dreams.This sci-fi adventure with the underpinnings of Korean mythology will transport you to a world far beyond your imagination.

      • content: When 13-year-old fox spirit Min learns that her brother, Jun, has gone missing from his post in the Space Forces, she abandons the backwater planet of Jinju and embarks on a dangerous quest to find him. With her shape-shifting abilities, magically persuasive "Charm," and clever tenacity, Min is a compelling heroine. Kim Mai Guest's youthful narration grounds listeners in Min's perspective, allowing the action and world-building to unfold around her in a heady blend of space opera and Korean folklore. As Min's journey introduces her to more and more characters, Guest provides unobtrusive yet distinct voices for all. Both culturally specific and broadly appealing, this science fantasy--Yoon Ha Lee's first for young listeners--is sure to grab listeners of all ages. R.A.H. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
