Moon Princess

Publisher: Chicken House

Review

Sienna is unhappy and alone in a strange city, Shanghai. Her father is busy working, her Mum has disappeared and the housekeeper is just plain mean. If she didn't have Rufus, a faithful - if rather grumpy - invisible dog, life would be unbearable.

When events take a sinister and threatening course, Sienna is forced out of her isolation and, with no one to turn to, she must make contact with the local people and trust they will help her find out the truth about her mother's disappearance.

Sienna is a feisty heroine who takes control of her own destiny. Elements of magic realism and spirituality are key to her courage and success, and give an interesting insight into a complex culture. A clever, engaging mystery thriller for young readers.
