Girl power is front and center in the latest Misewa adventure, which finds 13-year-old friends and a warrior squirrel in a desperate quest for a brother's stolen soul. If they fail, Eli, The Stone Child, whose soul's been snatched by a Bigfoot-like monster, will be lost forever, so there's a lot of urgency, a lot of action, a lot of emotion as events include satisfying reunions and heartbreaking loss. It's a lot to take in, as Morgan's BFF Emily notes: "Oh god, three days ago I was thinking about what kind of cereal I was going to have for breakfast, and now I'm following a shadow through a dead forest looking for a tree so you can release a soul from a stone."
