This week’s recommendation comes from Amanda Barnhart, Branch Manager at the North-East Branch Library.
She chose “Strange the Dreamer” by Laini Taylor.
“Some journeys can be planned, but for Lazlo Strange life offers a series of unanticipated opportunities and mysteries,” Barnhart said. “Orphaned as a baby, Lazlo finds connection in the grand stories and myths featuring a race of blue-skinned gods. When such beings come to town seeking assistance, will Lazlo jump at the chance to explore new worlds? With lush prose and excellent characterization, this fantasy novel provides ample space to discuss the impact of colonialism and colonization.”
“Strange the Dreamer” can be accessed using a Kansas City Public Library card, available in print, e-book, and e-audiobook.
