It's a book discussion (#thegreatteenread) solely on Instagram! We post a picture or a video of the month's teen title and you leave your comments. This month we will be reading "Spin the Dawn" by Elizabeth Lim.
Maia Tamarin wants nothing more than to follow in her father’s footsteps and become the world's greatest tailor. But, Maia is a just girl, and her only hope is to marry well.
When the court summons her ailing father, Maia poses as a boy and takes her father’s place. She knows her life is at risk, but this is the only way to save her family and to achieve her dream. Unfortunately, Maia is one of twelve vying for the job and the court magician seems to see straight through her disguise.
Amidst the cutthroat and deception, Maia embarks on a journey to find the laughter of the sun, the tears of the moon, and the blood of the stars in order to sew them into three magical gowns and win the competition.
Can we say Mulan and Project Runway?
