Nura and the Immortal Palace

Young woman looking at a palace from the entrance of a mine
Age Level: Middle Grade

Nura longs for the simple pleasure of many things, but with her mom hard at work in a run-down sweatshop and three younger siblings to feed, Nura must spend her days earning money by mica mining. Local rumor says there's buried treasure in the mine, and Nura knows that finding it could change the course of her family's life forever. Her plan backfires when the mines collapse and four kids, including her best friend, Faisal, are claimed dead. Nura refuses to believe it and shovels her way through the dirt hoping to find him.
