Booklist (August 2013 (Online))
Grades 4-8. Forced to live with a horrible scar from her eyebrow to her lip, Micay does not remember a time when she was not the Ugly One. But when she is 12, a yunka stranger arrives in her small village and presents her with a gift, a baby macaw she calls Sumac Huanacauri, or Handsome Rainbow. As the girl and the bird bond, the bird perches himself on her right shoulder, thus covering the scarred portion of her face. He also takes her to the Paqo, the village seer and healer, whose apprentice she becomes. Thus begins a process and journey that eventually takes her to the Sacred Sun City, Machu Picchu, and her destiny. Ellis introduces readers to the Incan culture and myths through Micay’s lessons in healing, Uncle Turu’s stories, and her people’s struggle through a horrible drought that threatens their very survival. Just as Uncle Turu’s stories hold special truths concealed as fables, this quiet, deeply moving story reminds readers of the true nature of beauty.
