Paint a mural. Start a battle. Change the world. Sierra Santiago planned an easy summer of making art and hanging out with her friends. But then a corpse crashes the first party of the season. Her strokeridden grandfather starts apologizing over and over. And when the murals in her neighborhood begin to weep real tears... Well, something more sinister than the usual Brooklyn ruckus is going on.

Strong heroine, magic, friendship, family, and culture? What more could I ask for?

This book was well written and beautifully read. Anika Noni Rose was perfection. Each character had individuality in the writing and reading. Each voice was unique to the character. So good. Can't wait to buy more books from DJ Older.
