Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Barnhill
AR Level: 5.3; AR Points: 11.0
In Princess Violet's world, stories are told of the twelve gods who created the multiverse. One day Violet and her friend, Demetrius, come across the secret story of a thirteenth god, a creature called the Nybbas that was imprisoned in the mirrored sky of their world for enslaving both dragons and people. When the Nybbas grants Violet a wish, the whole world ends up in terrible danger. Written from the point of view of the castle's official storyteller, this book begs to be read aloud.
