Narrator Suzie Yeung brings Graci Kim’s lively fantasy adventure The Last Fallen Star to life. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the fun of this story that brings together a magical world packed with Korean mythology and contemporary life in California. Twelve-year-old Riley was adopted into a clan of gifted Korean witches, but as a “saram”—one without magic—she is constantly aware of being an outsider. When her sister’s plan to share her magic backfires, Riley is launched on a quest to save her family, and to find her own sense of belonging. Listeners will find themselves fully immersed and invested in the story’s magical realm—and longing for the sequel!
