Synopsis: “A Little Princess – with tigers! Orphan and outcast Sahira Clive is a brave and plucky heroine with a brightly burning heart. I was rooting for her all the way to the end of this thrilling – and thought-provoking – adventure.”Ally Sherrick, award-winning author of Black Powder
Sahira’s family are travelling to England to deliver two majestic Indian tigers to the menagerie in the tower of London.
But tragedy strikes and sickness steals Sahira’s parents from her on the journey. Left alone in London, Sarhira finds herself confined to a miserable and dangerous orphanage. Despite her heartache and the threats she faces, Sahira is determined to carry out her father’s last request – to protect God’s beautiful creatures: her tigers. To do so, Sahira must set out on an adventure and use all her powers of persuasion to engage the help of some new friends along the way.
Can the quest to find her tigers a safe home, lead Sahira to find her own place of hope and belonging in this strange and foreign land?
Sahira – Hero Wiser Than Their Years
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab – Cass is definitely wiser beyond her years, at least when it comes to ghosts.
Rama & Sita – Majestic Book
Ok so this one was super hard for me. I decided to do a play on majestic and pick a gorgeous cover (impressive beauty).
Children of the Wales by Abi Umeda – This cover is gorgeous and I hardly ever see anyone talk about it.
Pence’s Orphanage for Pauper Children – Fictional World You Would Want to Live in
The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill is a world I’d love to live in! Could you imagine living in a world where you could have a pet Tea Dragon 😍
Mr. Pence – Favourite Villain
Grishaverse Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo – This one was a little harder for me. I don’t always remember the villains in a story – not well enough to decide who’s my favourite. At the moment, I’ll say The Darkling is my faovurite villain.
Sahira & Ned – Favourite Unlikely Friendship
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor – This entire series follows an unlikely friendship, but I’m not going to go into details because I feel like saying more would be spoilers.
Mrs. Cops – Favourite Fictional Mother
The Witch Boy by Molly Ostertag – Ok again another hard one… I haven’t read many books with moms still around. Aster’s mom, especially later in the series, is a very sweet woman. She’s accepting of Aster, even if it takes time and willing to take in and help others.
Tea & Ginger Cake – Book that Makes You Happy
Heartstopper by Alice Oseman – This entire series makes my heart happy!
Nebbie – Fictional Animal You Want as a Pet
Can I cheat and say Tea Dragon Society??? No?
The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen – This series is full of cats! Barf is adorable in this one and The Faithless Hawk. But really give me ANY of them lol.
