A sickly mom. A crummy travel trailer. High school bullies and snarky drama queens. Bad guys with
charming smiles. Allie has problems. And then there’s that whole thing about fulfilling a magical
prophecy and saving the world from evil.
Welcome to the funny, sad, sometimes scary world of fifteen year old Allie Emerson, who’s struggling to
keep her act together (not to mention her mom’s) in the small town world of Peacock Fats, Washington.
A zap from an electrical fence set off Allie’s weird psychic powers. The next thing she knows, she’s being
visited by a hippy dippy guardian angel, and then her mysterious neighbor, the town “witch,” gives her
an incredible moonstone pendant that has powers only a “Star Seeker’ is meant to command.
“Who, me?” is Allie’s first reaction. But as sinister events begin to unfold, Allie realizes she’s got a
destiny far bigger than she ever imagined. If she can just survive everyday life, in the meantime.
I loved this book! It was AWESOME. I love the characters, the storyline- ALL OF IT! I feel like Marilee really knew her characters and she knew how to leave the reader wanting more. This isn't one of those books that you'll want to put down and come back to later- rather it's AMAZING! You'll want to read it all in one go and grab the next one because you'll WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!
Allie is a great character. The kind that you feel what she's going through- and maybe you even relate to some of it because of things that have happened in your own life. You really want everything to work out for her. Her guardian angel is awesome and you hope she gets out of that dress! LOL!
The story is well worth the read and I highly recommend it to all readers! It's just a great book!
