About the Author

Chris Eboch is the author of over 20 published books for young people. Her book Advanced Plotting helps writers fine-tune their plots. The Eyes of Pharaoh is a mystery set in ancient Egypt, for ages nine and up. This story of drama and intrigue brings an ancient world to life as three friends investigate a plot against the Pharaoh. In The Well of Sacrifice, a Mayan girl in ninth-century Guatemala rebels against the High Priest who sacrifices anyone challenging his power. Kirkus Reviews called The Well of Sacrifice, “[An] engrossing first novel…. The novel shines not only for a faithful recreation of an unfamiliar, ancient world, but also for the introduction of a brave, likable and determined heroine.” Chris’s Haunted series follows a brother and sister who travel with their parents’ ghost hunter TV show. The kids try to help the ghosts, while keeping their activities secret from meddling grownups. The Knight in the Shadows won the 2010 New Mexico Book Awards in the category Juvenile Book. Her other books include two inspirational biographies in Simon & Schuster’s Childhood of Famous Americans series, Jesse Owens: Young Record Breaker and Milton Hershey: Young Chocolatier, written under the name M.M. Eboch, and several nonfiction titles. See her website at www.chriseboch.com. Chris also writes novels of suspense and romance for adults under the name Kris Bock; read excerpts at www.krisbock.com.

The Genie's Gift is a fun read for middle school readers. Set in medieval Arabia with liberal references to the fantastic, the story revolves around a young girl who wants to escape the constraints of her life. She sets forth on a quest to gain the one thing she thinks will expand her options, but a series of difficult challenges block her path. Many of these challenges mirror stories from The Arabian Nights, making this an easy entree into more classic literature. Ms. Eboch has produced a sympathetic character, which middle school readers will easily identify with. Her story combines humor, adventure and fantasy to deliver a valuable message on self esteem to young readers.

Because this book presents realistic life in 15th C Arabia, it could easily fulfill CCSS needs to integrating literature into the Social Studies curriculum.

This is a wonderfully woven tale with a profound surprise at the end. One can closely relate to the feelings of Anise who is very inspiring with her perseverance. Aunt Farasha and even the genie himself are powerfully motivating. The pace of the adventure never took a break!
