Silki the Girl of Many Scarves: Summer of the Ancient (Book 1) Reviews
I'm so thankful I picked-up this book to fill a reading blank in-between some heavy duty tomes on my reading pile. This is such a delightful story and Silki is unique and charming. I haven't read a great deal of YA, but Silki the Girl of Many Scarves is a good reminder of what I've been missing. Quick reading (which I really appreciated since my reading time is so limited) thoroughly likable characters, captivating setting, and a grand adventure holding it all together. I especially loved learning tidbits about Navajo traditions and culture that are skillfully interspersed throughout. And Silki herself; unique, funny, and genuine, is just the variety of intriguing character this reader is more than prepared to follow off into her next adventure.
Many book/news reports are saying more adults are now reading YA books. I'm not inclined toward YA, but I'm always interested in a story involving American Indians. Silki the Girl of Many Scarves is a fun story, and the action at the end was really intense. The protagonist, Silki, has a unique and well-written voice; descriptions made each scene visual. This is a fine story about friendship and family--with a lot of mystery and some Navajo culture included. The lovely illustrations were a plus.Recommend.
I'm not one to usually read a YA book, but "Silki: The Girl of Many Scarves" is a well-written and fun novel. It's easy to fall in love with Silki, and to be swept away into her world. The story is exciting, with lots of twists and turns. Definitely recommend.
Great for young adult girls. Deals with their problems while maintaining a great story line and suspensful mystery.
