Conrad Cooper needs a favour. He's just found out about Tane, the god of the forest, and he's decided that Tane is the perfect guy to solve his family problems. After all, the more high-profile gods probably have huge waiting lists, right? In return, Conrad will do anything to repay Tane, no matter how much trouble it causes. But will a Maori god listen to the prayers of a ten-year-old Pakeha boy? And, worse still, does Tane even exist?
100 YA books for the feminist reader via This list is fantastic, and includes both YA and adult titles that work well as crossovers (Sandra Cisneros, etc.). This will come in handy for the mother/daughter book club I hope to have when Elinor is older.
