EverA fascinating new book from Levine, inspired by the Biblical story of Jephthah, who must sacrifice his own daughter to fulfill a vow made in haste.  Kezi and Olus have fallen in love.  But Olus isn’t just a good-looking guy–he’s the Akkan god of the wind, while Kezi is a mere mortal.  To further complicate things, Kezi only has 30 days to live.  Together, Kezi and Olus set out to change fate and find a way for their true love to last forever.  Levine has created an interesting world of gods and mortals.  Most young readers will take this book at face value–the simple struggle of 2 people trying to make true love last forever.  More discerning readers will find much to discuss in Levine’s worldview–fate, gods and mortals, and the existence (or non-existence) and character of one god over everything.
