The Hidden Star

Publisher: Cassava Republic Press

Review

Nolitye lives in a township near Johannesburg, where everyone is on edge because children keep disappearing. When she finds a magic stone one day, and meets a man who reveals some secrets about the origin of her own magic powers, she sets out on a journey with her friends to set things right.

Part mystery, part quest, this book uses magic realism to tell an absorbing story about friendship and courage, which is filled with talking dogs, renegades who occupy the space between good and bad, and evil night riders that must be defeated.
