Are you ready for a new Rick Riordan Presents adventure? Pahua and the Soul Stealer hits bookshelves on 9/7, so we have less than a month to prepare. Let’s study up with this sneak peek of Lori M. Lee’s magical novel based on Hmong mythology, featuring one highly opinionated cat spirit.
My Best Friend Is a Cat Spirit

Most people would agree that having a talking cat spirit for a best friend is pretty strange. But for as long as I can remember, I’ve seen spirits. Not in a creepy way (although sometimes in a creepy way—more on that later), but in a normal Hey, spirits exist, and also, can I borrow some peanut butter? kind of way. Well, except for the part where no one else can see them but me.
