The Oracle of Stamboul by Michael David Lukas

With her own flock of colorful hoopoes, Eleonora is a special girl living in Turkey during a turbulent time.  Her intelligence becomes apparent quickly and she is summoned to the palace and changes the course of history.  You’ll root for Eleonora as she deals with tragedy and her future in a way that makes her seem much older than she is.  If you’re looking for a great summer read with magic, history, and an exotic backdrop, give The Oracle of Stamboul a try!
