Lately Nizhoni has been able to detect monsters, like Mr. Charles, her dad's new boss at the oil and gas company. He's also alarmingly interested in Nizhoni and her brother, Mac, their Navajo heritage, and the legend of the Hero Twins. Nizhoni knows he's a threat, but her father won't believe her. When Dad disappears the next day, leaving behind a message that says 'Run!', the siblings and Nizhoni's best friend, Davery, are thrust into a rescue mission that can only be accomplished with the help of Dine Holy People and their weapons. But it will take more than weapons for Nizhoni to become the hero she was destined to be...… (altro)

This was a nice read for me. It wasn't my absolute favorite, but I found the story intriguing as well as the Navajo lore. However, the story was rather predictable, and I found myself not becoming super attached to anyone in the book other than the main character. In all honesty, I wasn't super fond of the ending either. It was rushed and everything resolved itself in a way that felt too easy if that makes any sense. I do think that this is a great book for middle grade students and I think that that age group would probably enjoy this book more than I did. ( )

A current adventure using the Navajo Monsterslayer story, this book is OK, but not particularly true emotionally, as it seems what was in fact the case, written to order. ( )

It was a fun middle grade adventure featuring strong, diverse characters. Definitely would recommend for fans of Percy Jackson or those with an interest in Native American culture and mythology (especially Navaho). ( )

"The Diné have always been warriors, have always fought against the monsters who would seek to destroy us and our way of life".

I read this with We ❤ MG Lit book club and really enjoyed this one. It is important to note the criticism associated with the author's work and I recommend that you seek out Diné voices and research their culture outside of this book. I think the author the author's writing really spotlighted Diné culture and was respectful but I am not the audience to decide this. It did leave me wondering if it is ever ok to modernize sacred cultures and how much is ok to change to still remain authentic and honorable to the culture.

The first half of the story was so captivating that I breezed right through it and I contemplated if I should stay up all night. I loved Nizhoni who was not afraid to voice her opinions and take charge. I liked that the author used a character that was representative of her bi-racial/cultural identity who did not let anything stop him. The plot developed very quickly and it was easy to get swept up in the story. I wish the author would have included the side quests that were an important part of the mission, especially since Mac and Davery were so embedded in the story. I was a little disappointed that important events happened offline and took away some of the magic of the story. I would love to see a new adventure because I truly fell in love with the characters.

Overall, Race to the Sun was a great read and I am excited for more books in the future. The aspects I appreciated were:
🏹 Diné mythology and language
🏹 Biracial and Diné representation
🏹 Diné superheroes
🏹 Highlights fracking and ongoing environmental concerns on Indigenous lands
🏹 Well written and multifaceted characters that you easily fall in love with
🏹 Descriptive writing and glimpse into Navajo land
🏹 Clash of cultures, modern day colonization, honoring tradition
🏹 Single parent (Father) household
🏹 Reconciliation with family ( )

This is a fun way to learn about Navajo mythology and religious iconography. That said, everything ties up a bit too cleanly, but I think it's well-written for its intended audience of middle-grade readers and Percy Jackson fans. ( )
