Zo and the Forest of Secrets by Alake Pilgrim

Caribbean folklore meets futuristic fantasy in Alake Pilgrim’s debut Zo and the Forest of Secrets.

Zo is staying in Samaan Bay on Trinidad’s northeast coast with her mum, baby brother and stepdad, and she’s not happy. Missing her dad and friends, she decides to run away. Zo’s dad has taught her everything about the forest. At least, that’s what she thinks until it takes a strange and sinister turn, and Zo must summon all her courage to find a way home, save a lost boy and navigate the unsettling truths of an abandoned research facility. As Zo faces a thrillingly relentless succession of challenges, she makes a shocking discovery that splendidly sets the scene for the second book in this duology. 

This is an exhilarating adventure driven by the determination of its endearing heroine and the shocking secrets she finds in the forest. The novel subtly interweaves ecological topics, with Zo mentioning the devastating effects of large-scale logging and mining. With hints of Percy Jackson and Katherine Rundell’s The Explorers, this book should appeal to a broad reader base.
