Front cover and first page

Ms. Brenner, School Library Media Specialist

If you love YA fantasy novels and a good cliffhanger, this is the book for you! Descendant of the Crane by Joan He is a Chinese-inspired fantasy with fantastic plot. Princess Hesina is now queen but she steps into this role while facing great tragedy. Her father and former king is now dead and she is determined to find the truth and track his killer. This is a story of complicated characters, who simply cannot be labeled good or bad. He’s prose and world-building is sure to please any YA fantasy fan.

As the school year winds down, I’ll be offering First Page Friday glimpses from SYNC, which is a free audiobook program offered to teens during spring and summer months. Descendant of the Crane is one of two free audiobooks offered this week. You can download and listen to all of the audiobooks using your SORA app, which is the same app our school uses for ebooks and audiobooks.  Click here for more information.
