Tumble & Blue by Cassie Beasley

Cover image for Tumble & BlueFate can be a great thing, but not for Blue, whose fate it is to always lose, no matter what. Or for Tumble, who wants desperately to be a hero and save others, but always ends up needing to be saved herself in the end. There’s a legend that says a golden crocodile lives in the swamp and on the night of the blood red crescent moon one lucky person who finds him can have a great fate bestowed on them. So, on the night on the blood red crescent moon Tumble and Blue set out to find the golden crocodile and change their fate. However, the crocodile only has one fate he can give. So who should get it? Tumble? Blue? Or someone else that might need it more? This is also a great audio.
