by Jan Milusich
News spreads fast in a town as small as Earleville, and Marylou Q with her ten-foot invisible guardian dragon, Josephine, is the town's most talked about curiosity, especially among the girls at Earleville Academy.
But fitting in is the least of Marylou's worries. When Josephine has to leave because of a prophecy foretold at Marylou's, and her twin sister, Tessa's birth, Marylou wants to go too. But Josephine won't let her, and she won't tell her anything more about the prophecy. Marylou's angry and takes it out on Josephine. At home she decides to ask Momma, but Momma won't give Marylou any answers either... at least not until the eve of the new moon. Why then? Marylou's determined to find out.
Her curiosity is on high alert. Marylou's ability to hear peoples' thoughts and her new found ability to see into the past and the future give her clues, but no answers. Her investigative explorations lead to a hidden statue of a demi-god that is the sworn enemy of dragons. Why would her Momma have such a statue and what does it have to do with the prophecy? And why does Mr. Rukh, a peculiar new neighbor, show so much interest in it?
Many surprises await Marylou as she searches for answers, least of which is the help she receives from her arch enemy, Piper Johnson, a girl who's joy in life is teasing Marylou.
Journey with Marylou, Tessa and Piper as dragons multiply, danger mounts and Marylou's dilemma grows. Adventure and mythical creatures await your every turn of the page as Marylou fulfills the prophecy and seeks her destiny.
