A young girl receives a special message from a sacred Lakota leader about her power to change the world ...

Twelve-year-old Moraline is about to run away from her problems ... again. Since moving from New York to San Diego with her family, Moraline tends to push against a hot dry wind whenever trouble happens. But a chance encounter with a mysterious Lakota spirit in the woods of Northern California puts Moraline on the path toward understanding her power to fight injustice.

Moraline is an impactful story of social justice education, environmental awareness, and racial literacy.


"Moraline is a thought-provoking story that will inspire a new generation of movers and shakers."

-The Children's Book Review

"Fior has skillfully created strong, complex, relatable characters in her racially diverse cast. Her descriptions of Amani's disquietude about being discriminated against are powerful and sensitive."

-The BlueInk Review

"With its helpful list of social justice resources, Moraline is a gentle, empowering novel in which young advocates find their work enhanced by moments of magic."

- Foreword Clarion Book Review

About the Author

Children's fiction author Cintia Alfonso Fior first realized she wanted to be a writer after working with diverse underserved populations in South America, North America, and Africa. The perception of injustices and the great need to advocate for underserved populations, particularly children, inspired her to write her magical realism novel for young readers, Moraline. Fior has a MA in Peace and Justice Studies from the Kroc Institute of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego and serves as the current chair of the American Family Therapy Academy's (AFTA) Family Policy and Human Rights committee. Fior's goal is to use storytelling to facilitate conversations about racism, earth stewardship, and social justice. Originally from Argentina, she lives with her family in San Diego, California. Moraline is her debut novel.
