Maria's Beads

Authored by C. T. Markee
Designed by Jo-Anne Rosen
Edited by Amanda Conran

In this story of magical realism, María knows her best friend, Hannah, is sick, knows something is terribly wrong, but only takes action after a mysterious old woman gives her some strange, very pretty beads. When Hannah becomes deathly ill and her parents refuse medical treatment, María desperately tries to save her friend. Adults won't intercede, so she turns to the magic beads, but they can't do it alone. María must find and use her own inner strength, passed down to her through her ancestral Huichol culture . . . or watch Hannah die.
