Author Tamora Pierce is known for her marvelous fantasy stories featuring tales of magic and heroism, usually featuring brave and mighty girls. In 'Sandry's Book' she delivers the first in a quartet of books about a group of remarkable children who each possess a unique magical ability. Each of them is an outcast in their own way, and under the strict guidance of the teachers at the Winding Earth Temple where they have come to live they learn to work their magic. A noble girl, Sandry's magic is in weaving. Street thief Briar can communicate with and influence plants and growing things. Daja, an orphaned Trader, has a magical connection to metal, and the moody, prickly Tris has a relationship with the weather that unsettles even her. When a looming disaster threatens the group, they must learn to overcome their differences and work together in order to save themselves.
