Kathryn Lasky, the Newbery Honor-winning author of over 100 books for children and young adults, is perhaps best known for her Guardians of Ga'Hoole series, which was turned into a major motion picture last year. But whether it's about owls, wolves, or mermaids, Lasky just loves doing research. In her latest series, Daughters of the Sea, 19th-century teenage sisters discover a strange phenomenon: they are, quite literally, land-sick. The second installment, MAY, sees 15-year-old May longing to break free from the restraints of society, as the sea rightfully calls to her.
