* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
What would it be like to live in the time of Queen Tiy, mother to Amenhotep IV? Ranofer does just that. He is a young Egyptian boy, who longs to be a goldsmith like his father. Unfortunately, his father dies and leaves Ranofer in the grips of his half-brother, Gebu. Ranofer’s life becomes miserable until he finds out Gebu has been stealing. From the cover: “Then Ranofer finds a priceless golden goblet in Gebu’s room and he knows his luck – and his destiny – are about to change…” This book should be top on the lists because of the suspense and mystery. While being fiction, the book does plunge into what life might have been like in Ancient Egypt, Thebes more specifically. Readers of all ages will enjoy this adventure in Egypt. For middle school teens.
