The second book of Hoffman's acclaimed Stravaganza series is now available inpaperback. The life of young Georgia takes a sudden turn when she buys a tinyfigurine of a winged horse and suddenly finds herself swept up into the worldof Stravaganza.
"Characters travel through space and time, encounter mysterious creatures and more in an assortment of new installments. Of the first book, Stravaganza: City of Masks, PW said, 'The Renaissance backdrop [and Venetian-style city] set an elegant mood for the time-travel toggling.' This time a miniature model of a winged horse (another talisman of the Stravaganti, a brotherhood of scientists who use talismans to travel between time periods) sends 15-year-old equestrian Georgia to a 16th-century version of Tuscany in Stravaganza: City of Stars by Mary Hoffman. There Georgia gets caught up in the intrigue surrounding the birth of a real winged horse." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
