Amy reads the second part of the 1953 Newbery Medal winner Secret of the Andes, by Ann Nolan Clark, published by Puffin.
Cusi has returned to his hidden valley home, but the glimpse of a wider world has left him wanting more. Meanwhile, Chuto begins to teach Cusi the duties of a llama herder–but also something more, a duty that Cusi doesn’t yet fully understand. Just who is his guardian, and why do the two of them live in such an isolated place? When Chuto departs to give a gift to a lowland family, Cusi makes a startling discovery.
