About the Author:

Ellen Jensen Abbott thinks that life would be perfect if she could move her home, her job, her friends and her family to the White Mountains of New Hampshire where she grew up. Until she can convince everyone to join her, she's content to be writing, teaching English at the Westtown School, and living with her husband and two children in West Chester, PA.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7–10—Seventeen-year-old Abisina knows that the people in her adopted village, Watersmeet, are starving and that the danger from überwolves and minotaurs is high. As a result, the Keeper refuses entry to refugees from the restrictive south, where people believe beings other than humans with unblemished light skin and hair are demons. After Abisina is declared a traitor, she embarks on a quest to the south with her loyal friends: a centaur, a faun, a human girl, two dwarves, and the human boy she loves. The trek is only the beginning of hardship since Abisina, herself an outcast from the south, must convince the people there to accept her friends even as she tries to hide her ability to shift into a centaur. An unexpected gift at the end means a change in how the south and north will work together, leaving the teen to find the strength to become the leader she needs to be. The plot is fast paced and full of romance, suspense, and adventure and handles prejudice and acceptance in thought-provoking ways. Fans of Watersmeet (Amazon Children's Publishing, 2009) will enjoy this sequel, but it stands on its own.—Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA
