The Star-Touched Queen - Roshani Chokshi

Mystery, romance, and Indian folklore and mythology are interwoven in Roshani Chokshi’s eloquent debut novel.  Seventeen-year-old Mayavati has been cursed with a horoscope that proclaims she is destined to marry “death and destruction.” When Amar, a hitherto-unknown suitor, rescues Maya from a near-death experience, he calls her The Star-Touched Queen (St. Martin’s Griffin, $18.99). Amar has chosen Maya for her cleverness, her restless spirit, and the “fury in her heart.” In this story of reincarnation and the power of memory and illusions, Maya’s quest for truth and independence ultimately leads her to believe in herself— and true love. Ages 14-18.
