by Megan Whalen Turner, and published by Greenwillow Books, a division of William Morrow & Company
Winner Blurb: 

Freed from the royal dungeons and commanded to steal an ancient talisman from supernatural guardians, boastful young Gen pulls off an astonishing scam, and in the process rescues his own small country from a threatened invasion.

"Just as Gen skillfully keeps his captors in the dark as he carries out his schemes, Turner leads the reader along with subtly placed clues and artful misdirection, culminating in a stunningly clever climactic twist."
