Juniper Lynch has a flair for all things psychic – a gift she inherited from her dearly departed granny.
When her best friend, Gena needs help finding her missing retainer, Juniper is quick to try scrying, aka crystal-gazing. With no crystal ball handy, she goes the easy route and gazes into a glass of water. But the image that appears is not what she expected. The shriveled face of a missing girl floats to the surface. Juniper is seized by a mystical connection and the countdown clock begins.
Can she find the lost girl before they both wither away?
You know that you’re in for an adventure when the Ouija board gets pulled out!
After Gena loses her retainer and is threatened with six weeks away from her besties, she’s willing to try anything that will help her find it. Fortunately for her, Juniper has inherited a unique gift that may be able to locate its whereabouts. Unfortunately for all of them, however, the gift has a mind of its own. As their focus begins to hone in on a missing girl in Junipers vision, they forget the dangerous situation they’re putting themselves into.
Juniper, Gena, and Anne are a comical and adorable trio. The freak, the geek, and the beauty are a very relatable combination. I can think of several little groups that I’ve known over the years that would fit their profile perfectly. I laughed, and held my breath, as the amazing young women worked together without doubting Juniper’s gift.
I love Dax Varley, as her novellas are intelligently written, fast paced, and so much fun! She has such an enchanting way of combining the paranormal with the thrill of a mystery, while giving the narrative from a teenager’s point of view. This story is entertaining, creative, funny, and touching. As with any book from this author, I highly recommend this to YA fans!
