It was just another ordinary day for Genie Lo on her way to school thinking of all she needed to accomplish on her to do list for the day, when she noticed a boy being beaten in a ally and knew she had to do something. By throwing her backpack at the men and distracting them it was just enough to stop them, but now she has to run to school so they don't beat her, but that isn't what she is worried about, nope, it is her missing notes and books. But than her backpack is there along with a new student, the monkey king from the stories of old.
This was a great story mixing modern with ancient lore, with a lot of action, suspense and there are a few twists and turns that will keep you on your toes, but all and all it is a book that captures your interest and you wont want to put it down. I really hope we get to see more of Genie and Quentin soon.
