Summary

It is not down on any map; true places never are.

Maya Nelson isn't your typical thirteen-year-old. She's spent her whole life living on the sea with her marine biologist parents, her younger brother, Simon, and baby sister, Penny. Maya used to love living on a sailboat, but lately, everything feels terribly claustrophobic. Maya longs to go to school on land. To make friends. To lead a normal life. But when a violent storm hits and Maya's parents are washed overboard, life becomes anything but normal. The children manage to steer the boat toward a mysterious island, to a place that doesn't exist on a map.

Welcome to Tamarind, where fish can fly, pirates patrol the waters, jaguars lurk, the islanders are at war, and an evil, child-stealing enchantress rules the jungle.

Maya never imagined she'd have to face so many dangers. But then, who could have imagined a place like Tamarind?

In her stunning first middle grade novel, The Lost Island of Tamarind, Nadia Aguiar tells a heart-pounding adventure story about a haunting, fantastical island cut off from the outside world. The adventure continues in book two, Secrets of Tamarind, and book three, The Great Wave of Tamarind.

“Spunky kids, perilous pursuits and marine mystery make for a smashing good read.” —
