Most fifteen year old girls are trying to figure out who they are; I’m trying to stay alive long enough to figure out what.
I’ve always been on the run. From my guilt about the things I couldn’t change, and from the voice in my head that won’t let me be normal. But yesterday Tommy and I were in a car accident on the way home from school. When I woke up, Tommy was gone, and so was the world I grew up in. Now I’m running less in a metaphorical way, and more in a “pick up the pace if you don’t want to die” way. Why? Because my eyes are blue, and I’m lost in a fantasy world where that means I’m different. It means I might not be human. It means I should already be extinct, and someone called “The Regent” is determined to make me that way.
I need to find the way home, and before I do that, I need to find Tommy. He’s only in this mess because of me. I can’t do it on my own, but it’s hard to know who to trust when everyone keeps trying to kill me.
This is a wonderful story about a girl who thinks she’s human, but when she’s in an accident, she is somehow transported into another place and boy does it get crazy from there. I am really hoping this is going to be a series because I would love to know so much more. And though the story wraps up nicely, there’s a little opening for some more to come. Ms Sara I hope you get my message to write more!! 🙂 I had to laugh when Sera keeps thinking about Alice in Wonderland, that she fell down the hole 🙂
Sera, aka Serendipity, wakes up from a car accident on a beach in a whole different world. People think she’s their “lost princess” and she wants nothing but to go home to her family. As she learns more about some of the people around her, she even begins to believe them, just a little, and agree to help them if they will help her get home. And then she learns about the horrible things happening. She’s a young teenage girl, what can she do, but she will find a way to help if she can. And then she makes friends, and allies with scary creatures, and then she really starts to understand who and what she is.
There’s some wonderful characters in here, several I have totally fallen in love with. And there’s definitely mystery and intrigue. And there’s lots of humor, as well as serious moments. It’s got a little bit of everything that can appeal to so many. I really enjoyed the writing and how easily it flowed. I was serious when I said that I really hope this one becomes the beginning of the series, I see it having so much to grow from 🙂 A fun and sweet little fantasy that I say gets 5 MAGICAL PAWS 🙂
