Lalani of the Distant Sea

Autor Erin Entrada Kelly
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 16 ian 2020

When Lalani Sarita's mother falls ill with an incurable disease, Lalani embarks on a dangerous journey across the sea . . .

Life is hard on the island of Sanlagita. To the west looms a vengeful mountain, one that threatens to collapse and bury the village at any moment. To the north, a dangerous fog swallows sailors who dare to venture out, looking for a more hospitable land. The women live in fear of the deadly mender's disease, spread by the sharp needles they use to repair the men's fishing nets.

When Lalani Sarita's mother pricks her finger and falls ill, she gives twelve-year-old Lalani an impossible task - leave Sanlagita and find the riches of the legendary Mount Isa, which towers on an island to the north. But generations of men and boys have died on the same quest. How can a timid young girl survive the epic tests of the archipelago?

Sometimes you choose yourself.
Lalani Sarita faces an impossible future. Her mother has fallen ill and is unlikely to recover. Drum and Kul—her stepfather and stepbrother—are cruel and vindictive overlords. There is only cleaning and cooking and mending and errands—for someone such as Lalani, life on Sanlagita involves little else.
Lalani Sarita faces an impossible task.She only wanted to save Toppi. She only wanted to help her best friend, Veyda. But everything is her fault. Everything. The rain—coming now in torrents and causing unspeakable disaster—is all her fault.
So Lalani does what only one girl on the island of Sanlagita has ever done before. She slips into a small scouting boat and sets out across the Veiled Sea, looking for a different future. That other girl never returned. Will Lalani?
Sometimes you choose yourself.
