    DescriptionBirdy thought she knew her family and friends.   She was wrong.   Birdy’s grandfather is dead -- shot by her childhood nanny, Patricia.  Her father is bent on bringing Patricia to justice: her mother’s having an affair with the minister who has come to bury Birdy’s grandfather: her best friend Louis is an escaped slave: and the local doctor’s mind has clearly jumped the tracks somewhere along the way. Who can Birdy turn to for help with her grief and confusion?  Who can she trust?   The latest volume in this brightly colored, thought-provoking series brings new challenges and intrigues to The Lost Colony as everyone’s secrets begin to unravel and nothing is quite what it had seemed.

    Review quote
    Klein continues his masterful political fantasy The Lost Colony by turning the spotlight on frontier religion’s exploitative powers.  Protagonist Bird, a rambunctious child who is doted on by many former slaves, surviving Indians, and the Chinese immigrant scientist Dr. Wong, has a terrible time this outing.  She is coping with sad memories of her deceased grandfather, struggling to make sense of the newly arrived, insipid, and dangerous preacher Buck Swagger; and fighting with her true friend, Louis.  As ever, the Lost Colony’s environment is filled with surface sweetness and light, not to mention magic rock-bones, cute bugs, and sassy nineteenth-century costumes setting off big hair and soulful eyes.  Readers who enjoy political satire will find this a treat, while graphic novel aficionados who have waited a year for this episode will be delighted to find it continues to pack unexpected punches.  Newcomers to the series will want to begin with
