"Aguiar's exciting debut novel is a cross between Peter Pan and Lost. . . . Developed with seeming ease, each new character advances the plot logically and fluidly.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
"The book's magic . . . lies in Aguiar's precise, often lyrical descriptions. A native and resident of Bermuda, she writes with authority about daily life in the tropics. . . . The Lost Island of Tamarind has a gentle spirit, tempering its dangers with warmth.” ―The New York Times Book Review
"Each detail of this fantasy is crafted with care; readers will be drawn into this dangerous, magical world where anything is possible and nothing can be fully explained...Young people will be transported to a world so different from the one they currently inhabit, following along as Maya and Simon escape their adversaries and struggle to survive in this hostile land.” ―School Library Journal

Even though I'm now 41, I remember clearly the absolute joy of ploughing deeply into a book like this one, and getting completely wrapped up in the story...
It's a solid story, with some excellent characters and ideas, but it also has a lot of flaws in terms of plot handling, and extreme cases of seemingly endless good luck to keep our heroes on the inevitable path to final resolution.
Worth reading, enjoyable and rich in ideas and themes, but not a stone cold classic by any means.
I liked the part when Evondra sees maya in cloud village!!
This book was recommended by my BFF penny!!!!
