Delroy and the Marog Princess - A Good 'e'read

Short Description :
"Delroy believes he became a marog, a type of frog, when he was swept into an underground river in Jamaica. His resolve to forget that awful event is shattered when Rana, the Marog Princess, becomes a girl and appears in his village. After his goal to turn her into a marog fails, he realizes he’s falling in love with her. Now his greatest fear is that she will transform before he can win her heart."
This is a lively tale, follow-on to Delroy in the Marog Kingdom, published by Macmillan in their Island Fiction Series. When the story begins, Delroy is just settling back into his normal life with his mother, and his father's family including his half-brother, Mario. He is even doubting that he had been a marog  and experienced living with them - until the return of Tevon, a boy the villagers thought had been drowned six years earlier. Immediately Delroy recognizes him as the boy-turned-marog he had met in his previous adventures. When Rana turns up, he no longer doubts his memories, and must deal with the threat against her so that she can safely return to her father in the marog kingdom.

There are several twists and turns as Delroy finds out more about marog history and tries to save Rana from a dangerous marog turned human who wants to kill her. Interest is heightened by the budding romances between the teen characters.  The author also enriches the story with clever use of references to the Tainos from Jamaica's past and the folkloric, River Mumma.

This is a very good summer's read for the YA age group. Get your copy at:
