Children Of Blood And Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
Wow what an amazing debut novel. The story was so very creative and unique. I just loved it. It follows Zelie, a young girl that lives with her brother and father in a poor fishing community that is required to pay higher and higher taxes to the monarchy which is violent and dreadful. One day Zelie is off to the market to sell a very rare fish and there she stumbles upon the runaway princess and that is when the adventure begins. I don't want to go into the story more as to not spoil it but I highly recommend this book to everyone. It definitely is a "Must Read" book.
