Sandry's Book (book review)

In this book by Tamora Pierce, four outcasts come together. There is Sandry, a spunky noble; Briar, a street boy; Tris, a girl who, at her old boarding home, is labeled the "fattie", and Daja, a shipwrecked Trader girl. When they are all brought together at the Winding Circle community, they discover that they have powers they never imagine. Sandry can weave threads together and create light. When disaster strikes Winding Circle, the only place she has ever been accepted, Sandry must weave together all four kinds of magic to save herself, her friends, and their whole community.

Although I enjoyed this book, it wasn't as good as the other book I have read by this author, Terrier. I will still want to read the rest of the series, however, and I was excited to find that there is actually more than one series featuring these same characters.
