All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Sixteen-year-old orphan Yonie supports herself in the Bad Bayous by interpreting the "guile" in objects customers bring her. After seeing clients with unusually malevolent objects, Yonie embarks on a quest that reveals secrets about guile and also about her family's history. Cooper's fresh fantasy boasts a new kind of magic, a compellingly original watery world, and memorable characters (including a talking cat). Copyright 2016 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Yonie Watereye, the memorable heroine of Cooper's debut, lives with her talking cat, LaRue, in a city reminiscent of New Orleans. Orphaned and rejected by her surviving relatives, 16-year-old Yonie makes a modest living thanks to LaRue, who is sensitive to guile, a magical substance that suffuses the river. A series of adventures, initially episodic and rushed, leads Yonie to seek out her relations—both the bayou-dwelling paternal cousins she grew up with and the mysterious High Town family of her disowned mother. Before long, the ever-curious Yonie and her smitten cousin Gilbert are headed upriver in a sentient houseboat, on the run from a terrifyingly irresponsible villain, and on track to discover the origins of guile. A slower pace in the second half, despite the ramped-up suspense, allows for more exploration of Yonie's world and character. Cooper adeptly captures the transition from adolescence to adulthood as Yonie faces temptations and hard choices, but the real star of the show is LaRue, whose primness amuses while her mutual loyalty with Yonie gives the story its heart. Ages 12–up. Agent: John Silbersack, Trident Media Group. (Mar.)
