The Boy Who Plaited Manes by Nancy Springer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a good story, and it was very interesting. My only complaints with it are that the boy had not reached puberty, or it seemed as if he hadn't so that made one part of the story a little awkward. Another thing that might have been good to know is who the boy actually was, like he could have been some legend or mythological figure. All in all as a short story it was very good and I think that it wouldn't take much work to be brought to a full length story if the author wanted to do so.
