When 13-year-old fox spirit Min learns that her brother, Jun, has gone missing from his post in the Space Forces, she abandons the backwater planet of Jinju and embarks on a dangerous quest to find him. With her shape-shifting abilities, magically persuasive "Charm," and clever tenacity, Min is a compelling heroine. Kim Mai Guest's youthful narration grounds listeners in Min's perspective, allowing the action and world-building to unfold around her in a heady blend of space opera and Korean folklore. As Min's journey introduces her to more and more characters, Guest provides unobtrusive yet distinct voices for all. Both culturally specific and broadly appealing, this science fantasy--Yoon Ha Lee's first for young listeners--is sure to grab listeners of all ages.
