Thumbs up for The Ghost Dragon’s Daughter by Beth Bernobich. Fantasy.
If you (like the heroine) are a young lady of the Seventy Kingdoms, you might use a dip pen and inkwell at school, or you might be so lucky as to have a portable calculor and stylus; but either way you had better be wary of staying out too late lest the queen’s watch demons get you. And you definitely need to finish that translating machine so you don’t flunk your exam…all of which might be more difficult if you fall in love with one of your girlfriends. This is a delightful story with lovely worldbuilding and some nicely unexpected twists. I’ll keep a look out for other things set in this universe.
Gschu is silent, but her presence hovers close. I sense the other spirit companions too—Mei’s Ning and Lili’s Biyu—all of them chattering in their private language. Then with a ping, their presence winks out, like snuffed candles, and it’s just me and Lili and Mei.
