" I received a copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Wow this book was so good! It's what we have come to expect from Rosh and Rick books with a great mixture of mythology and slight snarky teen narrators. I absolutely adore Aru and her relationship with Mini and Boo. I can't wait to see how this story progresses with the next few books in the series that are slated. " said.

"This book was so fun right from start to finish! It was the perfect balance of action and humour and feelings. And while Aru was totally awesome and just a really well thought out character, I am ride or die for my girl Mini! Honestly, I don't think this book would have been as good if she hadn't acted as the perfect counter-balance to Aru.

Also, having only a vague knowledge of some of the components of Hindu mythology before starting, I was absolutely enamoured by the mythology by the time I finished the book. Roshani Chokshi did such an amazing job of weaving in the mythology that someone with absolutely no knowledge of it whatsoever going in could easily follow along. I can't wait to discuss this with the kids when we read this for our book club next month.

I am so jazzed for the next book in the series, and even more so for the other books that are coming out from this imprint because if they're as well done as this was, it's going to be such a fun and wild mythological ride!

"I was really excited when I got approved from Disney Books on Netgalley to review this fantastic book. Aru Shah is the adventure story all little girls (and boys) need.

Even though Aru is far from a perfect main character, that's what makes her so relatable and enjoyable to read about. She's a 12 year old girl who is just trying to find her place in this world, while her mom constantly travels for work to find more artifacts for the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture. When Aru accidentally unleashes a dark demon on humanity she has to go on an adventure to save the world. Meeting lots of interesting characters along the way, the reader is taught about Hindu gods and Indian culture. Aru finds out more about herself and her strength throughout the book, while also making friends along the way.

I loved reading this wonderfully diverse book and I think fans of Percy Jackson and Harry Potter would easily fall in love with Aru Shah's world. And it's especially refreshing to read books that celebrate young women of color and their bravery. I can't wait to read the next book in this series when it comes out next year!

"Aru Shah is 12 years old, and has a flexible relationship with the truth. In an attempt to impress her classmates after they discover that she's lied, she lights a cursed lamp. Lighting that lamp releases The Sleeper, whose duty is to wake the God of Destruction. To stop The Sleeper, Aru will have to gather allies in her spiderman pajamas and undergo a journey to the Kingdom of Death.

Aru is probably one of the most adorable protagonists I've read in a good recently. She's lonely at school, not having any friends, so she makes up stories about royalty, adventures and travels to keep her company. Because she doesn't necessarily tell the truth all of the time, it gets her into trouble. Aru's mother loves her very much, but she's quite busy running the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture.

Aru meets Mini, one of the heroines, and watching the two of them grow closer was really amazing. There aren't a lot of books about two girls becoming friends, going on adventures together, and having a friendship without the talk of boy.

So, if you want to read a cute adventure story about two girls and a pigeon named Boo, I totally recommend.

" My favourite character in this book is a house. Well, a palace. With strong feelings. " said.

" Sailor Moon? Indian mythology? Roshani Chokshi? take my library card/money " said.

" ahhhh this book is SO MUCH FUN. i loved the characters, adventures, and everything! i was a little worried because i'm starting to grow out of middle grade, but i loved it. the writing is so funny and had me laughing so many times. the only thing was that it could get predictable at times, but that's understandable considering it's MG and most MG are super predictable. i can't wait to read the rest of the series. <333 " said.

" Loved this book! So funny and great Hindu mythology! Plus lots of girl power throughout!! " said.
