    I mostly agree with Lucy on this one. I will say that this story is different from every other book that I've read. Trust me I'm the owner! Of the library card that checked out this book.

    Put this on your must read list!
    This book was extremely well written and just overall a marvelous read. It is about Ning, a young woman whose mother has recently been poisoned by infected tea, and her sister, Shu, is dying too. In order to save Shu, Ning must compete in a contest at the palace. It’s slightly hard to explain the magic part of this book, but generally it’s based on different types of tea. I thought this book was very unique and an extremely fun read. Also, there was very little to no romance in this book, so if you do not like that sort of stuff, this book is for you.
