Published by Walker Books
From the moment Sonia Ocampo slipped into the world, blue and shivering, the hopes and dreams and fears of others have weighed heavily on her shoulders.

On that night, the village folk of Tres Montes survived the most horrific storm they had ever seen which led them to believe that Sonia must possess a special gift to heal and protect. But after a young boy dies despite her prayers, sixteen-year-old Sonia is filled with shame and a sense of utter powerlessness. The hundreds of tiny gold symbols pinned to her shawl now only seem like empty, superstitious charms. At once she longs to escape a life built on lies.

With the help of her aunt, Sonia escapes Tres Montes for the city to begin a post in the household of a wealthy
woman. But then comes the devastating news that her brother has gone missing from the village. It is not the
first time a young man has disappeared in the region, and everyone knows all too well what his fate may be.
Sonia must now risk absolutely everything to find him, and find a way to bring him home.
