LOST IN THE LABYRINTH
Boston : Houghton Mifflin,

on the Greek myth of the Minotaur, this book takes us beyond the familiar
story. Told from the perspective of Xenodice, the sister of the Minotaur,
we learn the background story about how the beast came to be. Xenodice
truly loves her brother in spite of his appearance and she is determined
to keep him safe. Her older sister, Ariadne feels differently though.
When she meets the handsome Athenean Theseus, she conspires to have him
kill her brother. This story reads like a real cloak-and-dagger mystery.
