Silki the Girl of Many Scarves: Summer of the Ancient (Book 1) by Jodi Lea Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Many book/news reports are saying more adults are now reading YA books. I'm not inclined toward YA, but I'm always interested in a story involving American Indians. Silki the Girl of Many Scarves is a fun story, and the action at the end is really intense. The protagonist, Silki, has a unique and well-written voice; descriptions made each scene visual.
This is a fine story about friendship and family--with a lot of mystery and some Navajo culture included. The lovely illustrations were a plus.
