Pilar Ramirez and the Escape from Zafa

Pilar Ramirez and the Escape from Zafa

by Julian Randall

Fans of Tristan Strong and Land of Stories, here is your next obsession. Pilar Ramirez’s world is changing, and she doesn’t care for it. Her Chicago neighborhood is gentrifying, her best friend moved away and her responsibilities have doubled. The only constant is Abuela and Mami’s code of silence around her cousin Natasha who disappeared in the Dominican Republic 50 years ago. When Pilar finds the chance to dig deeper into this mystery, she gets sucked into Zafa—an island of Dominican myths and legends swarming with coconut-shaped demons, butterfly shapeshifters and a sinister magical prison. Pilar will have to face the Dominican boogeyman, El Cuco, if she has any hope of getting back home.
