All the dynamics in the first two books come together for an exciting conclusion in THE FORGOTTEN SISTERS. Miri uses her past knowledge and some new skills she picks up along the way to participate in the world as a fully actualized person who learns from her mistakes. Readers can see her everyday application of the more abstract ideas about ethics, philosophy, and strategy introduced in previous installments and watch her learn to negotiate and advocate for her fellow citizens as well as her friends and loved ones, while also considering the viewpoint of rulers and nobility.

Miri is smart, resilient, and compassionate and has a lot of heart. She's a character both boys and girls can relate to as she discovers the excitement of the city and the adult world, while still longing for a sense of home and the simplicity of the past. It's a story about growing up that inspires the best impulses in people, even as it entertains as a fun, fast-paced adventure.
