Libby Recommendation

The Spindle of Fate

The Spindle of Fate book coverTwelve-year-old Evie Mei Huang never did like helping in her mom's tailor shop. She hated dyeing and spooling the thread and how the measuring tape gets all twisted up. Now that her mother has died, she hates that she isn't here anymore.

It's weird when a talking monkey shows up and tells her that her plain, hardworking tailor mother was actually the head of a guild of magical weavers who control the fate of humanity. Also, her mother is trapped in Diyu, the Chinese underworld, and only Evie can get her back. 

The important thing is that Evie's mom isn't dead. And if she's got this one shot to bring her back and save her family, she's got to take it. Read this mythological adventure, written by Aimee Lim, as an eaudiobook, with no wait time (an ebook version is also available, wait time may apply).
