A Historical Fantasy first for Marie Lu! And she really pulled out all the stops for this one. Marie Lu is known for her work as a YA Author but this book really took me into another world, an unexpected yet rich, inviting and unforgiving world of patriarchy, sibling love and rivalry and striving for greatness.
In a world amongst men, Nannerl Mozart, the prodigal sister of Wolfgang Mozart is lost among the crowd. Always striving for perfection yet constantly overlooked by her brother, Nannerl just wants to be great; as great as her brother and wants everyone to see her as an equal.
Marie Lu did not disappoint with this harrowing story of beautiful, struggling Nannerl and its books like these that remind me why I read YA even as an adult and will continue to do so.
