It's not easy being a girl of two worlds, but Sunny is just that. Born in the United States to Nigerian parents, Sunny moves back to her parents' homeland where her American accent and albino skin don't help her to fit in. She is 'Akata': not quite American, but not quite African, either. And Sunny is about to discover that while she was born to a family of Lambs - people with no magic - she is a Leopard, a free agent with the ability to use magic and forever unable to reveal her secret to her Lamb family. It's not easy being a girl of two worlds, and it's about to get even harder when the serial killer targeting children reveals his true intentions.

Commenter: Samantha, grade 18
The first book in The Song of the Lioness quartet, Alanna: The First Adventure is the story of a young girl who knows exactly what she wants and is willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen. When Alanna's father tries to send her off to become a proper young lady, she takes matters into her own hands, trades places with her twin brother (who would much rather be a sorcerer, anyway), and rides off to the palace to train as a knight. While disguising her real identity is hard enough, Alanna also must combat bullies as well as magical beings who mean to do her and Prince Jonathan harm. Is there a plot against the royal family? Will her secret be revealed before she becomes a knight? Follow Alanna's journey through the rest of the series to see how her life unfolds!
