Anna Waldorf-Ocampo wants to get away from thee ever-present scrutiny that comes with her famous name. She will do anything to avoid dealing with her ruthless older sister, Elizabeth, although she gets along with her belittled other half sister, Olivia. Tragedy strikes when their father is felled by a mysterious illness that has no cure. The family's only hope lies in a bird called the Adarna, a mythical creature that can only be found in the Philippine jungle. The three sisters are each tasked to search for the elusive creature. Whoever retrieves it first will inherit their father's billion-dollar empire, but they must hurry, or they will lose their father forever.
In The Search for Adarna, KM Levis weaves together Philippine folklore with modern-day sensibilities to tell a quest for a legendary bird whose song can cure all ailments. Levis's deft characterization and engaging plot are sure to hook young readers, taking them on an amazing journey of supernatural and personal discoveries.
