If you enjoy Sarah J. Maas or Tamora Pierce, check out this adventure-packed, heroine fantasy with a splash of Chinese folklore and forbidden romance. Skilled seamstress, Maia Tamarin, longs to become a great tailor, but she is a girl. Her father receives an invitation to compete for the position of royal tailor, but he is ailing. Maia seizes her chance, disguises herself as a boy, and goes in his stead. Now she must succeed in a series of complicated, sometimes dangerous competitions, against 12 male contenders. And if anyone discovers her gender, she will be disqualified.
