In this captivating quest that spans the globe, a young girl
must challenge her assumptions about family, slavery, and friendship as she
fights to save her father’s legacy … and to begin creating her own.
Hallelujah Wonder wants to become one of the first female
scientists of the nineteenth century. Her father was a scientist and explorer,
but his life was cruelly cut short by an evil Navy captain who coveted his
cache of artifacts. Hallelujah feels a great responsibility to protect the
objects—particularly a mesmerizing (and dangerous) one called the Medicine
Head—before the captain can succeed. Now she and her best friend, a slave boy
about to be sold, must set out on a sweeping adventure by land and by sea to
the only place where no one will ever be able to find the cursed talisman: the
forbidding land of Antarctica. Download and start listening now!
