Kira and the Rat Queen
Jason R. James, author
Kira Turner used to know exactly who she was—the weird girl in fifth-grade with bright pink hair—but since her parents were kidnapped six days ago, everything has changed. Now she’s Princess Kira the First, and with the help of her friends, Snugg, Ben, and Fred the zombie, she’s on a mission to save both of her parents…but it won’t be easy. Kira has learned that her father was sold to the dreaded Rat Queen, and his only hope for rescue lies with Kira and her companions. Trapped in a strange world with magical gryphons, armies of rats, and some familiar enemies, Kira must learn quickly who she can trust—and who she can’t—before it proves to be too late.
