Praise for The Girl from Oto:
"An exquisite novel." -- Martha Conway, North American Book Award-winning author of Thieving Forest
"From the very beginning I was enthralled with Mira, Zari, and their entwined journeys through history and the world of art. As a curator and art historian, it's a rare treat for me to find a novel that so lovingly reflects our joys and challenges. The Girl from Oto delivers--and I can't wait to spend more time with Mira." -- Jennifer Dasal, host of the ArtCurious podcast
"A powerful story and an intriguing mystery. A Red Ribbon winner and highly recommended." -- The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
