Publisher's Summary

Malique Laveaux is a 15-year-old misfit with multi-toned skin. He's an orphan and often spends time alone, until one day he runs into a flower shop. There, he meets the owner, Sokie Roberts and her 10-year-old niece, Lani. He feels connected to them somehow.
As time progresses, Lani informs Malique she has dreams about him. One of the dreams includes him aboard a ship being manhandled by two burly men demanding he take his shirt off so they can see the map on his back.
Then strange things start to happen. One of the most beautiful girls from school, Clarissa Jones, suddenly takes notice of Malique. Even a Professor of History turns up on his doorstep, claiming to be an old friend of his biological mother. The professor also insists that his sister is still alive.
Is his sister truly alive? Could the pattern on Malique's skin actually be a map?

Where does Malique's Quest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed it. In a very short space of time I found myself fascinated by answering the question of who Malique is. Brilliant!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Malique's Quest?

I liked the ending. It concluded enough but was also open enough to allow a sequel to take us into the next phase of Malique's quest/life.

What about Giselle Lumas’s performance did you like?

The familiarity with the characters comes out in the narration. Confidence in who the characters are and what they are about comes across throughout this very enjoyable book.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was drawn in more than anything else. I wanted to get to the end, get my answers as I really liked Malique, indeed all the characters were great in their own ways. Very good!
