There were so many things I enjoyed about the story Culloo. I was struck immediately by the authentic voice of the main character, a teenage girl on the cusp of adulthood. The story flowed beautifully with just enough description to give me a wonderful sense of the characters surroundings without getting bogged down with too much flowery language. The plot was fast paced and although it was clear that the story was intended for children, the character development and level of suspense made the story enjoyable for me as an adult. I especially loved how the author infused the native american culture and a respect for nature into this coming of age gem. Looking forward to sharing Culloo with the children in my life and to reading more stories by this author.
