Journey Across the Hidden Islands by Sarah Beth Durst {Book Review}

Sarah Beth Durst's Journey Across the Hidden Islands is a solidly middle grade book (I've been having feelings about books being called Middle Grade that seemed more YA) about two twin sisters, who happen to be princesses, and who go on an epic adventure.

How can anyone resist a book with a winged lion on the cover? To jump in an realize that lion had a great sense of humor was a real treat.

Sarah Beth Durst's Journey Across the Hidden Islands is a solidly middle grade book (I've been having feelings about books being called Middle Grade that seemed more YA) about two twin sisters, who happen to be princesses, and who go on an epic adventure.

I really really love a story with young girls who are smart, brave, humble, and determined. The girls are entrusted with a great responsibility and they rise to the challenge. The world building here was outstanding, too, with a rich array of creatures scattered among islands hidden from the world.

If you or your young reader end up liking this novel as much as I did, check out Durst's The Girl Who Could Not Dream. When my 9-year old read it, she loved it!
