Emily Woo Zeller offers an exciting narration of this sapphic TREASURE ISLAND retelling with Asian characters. Xiang wants more than the sheltered life her mother plans for her. She is desperate to prove that she can assist her mother with her expansive business empire. After Anh steals Xiang's pendant, they discover that it contains a map to the lost treasure of Zheng Yi Sao, and they team up to find it. Zeller deftly handles Chinese and Vietnamese words throughout the story, and her emotional connection with the characters emphasizes fierce female characters and the slow-burn romance between them. An author's note at the end, narrated by Lee, details the inspiration behind the story. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
