Just a little magic... Clap your hands. If you clap your hands, you can keep Tinkerbell from perishing. Wear a cross to protect your spirit. But what happens if you thought you were always plain, until you learn that you are a Queen?
“Do you actually think your little human justice system is any match for the Earth’s Speaker?” Aaron took several steps toward David so they stood eye-to-eye. “I’m magical, little human. I can kill you with one glance, one flick of my pinkie finger.”
Jane jumped up because she knew he was telling the truth. She felt the key heat up on her chest when he looked at it. He was magical and filled with power. David was an ordinary teenage boy. There was no fair fight here, only death.
“David, stop.” Jane walked between them, turning to face Aaron. She needed to be brave. She might be plain Jane, but she was the only one in their town who understood magic. “If you hurt my friend, Aaron, I will not go with you.”
Aaron nodded and took several steps back. The fact he’d backed down only reinforced how much he needed her help.
David grabbed her shoulders and turned her so they were face-to-face. “You can’t be seriously thinking about going anywhere with this guy.” His brown eyes widened with so much alarm, it almost made Jane laugh. The look was somehow endearing.
“Maybe.” She shrugged as if still contemplating her options, but she already knew what she wanted. She would go with Aaron.
She had to. Jane had always known she was magical and that her sixteenth birthday was important. When she put on her mother’s necklace for the first time, she knew it was going to change her life. Aaron coming here and asking her for help was not a coincidence. This was her moment to find out more about herself and about her mother. It was time to take a risk.
“Jane!” David shook her shoulders as if trying to shake some sense into her. “You can’t be serious. This guy could be a serial killer.”
“I doubt that.” Jane rolled her eyes with annoyance. She was about to enter a magical world, and David was trying to hold her back. Nobody wanted her to be anything but Plain Jane.
“I won’t let you go with him.” David shook his head, and his grip on her shoulders tightened.
“You don’t have a choice.” She gestured to Aaron and tried not to smile. “Magical, remember?”
David opened his mouth to argue, and Jane covered his lips with her fingers, much as he had with her earlier. An instant attraction took over as she starred into his eyes. The feel was somehow more magical than Aaron’s very existence.
“I have to go, David. I’m not normal.” She shrugged again, trying to ignore the pleading look in his eyes. “I know you won’t believe this, but I think I called Aaron here when I was standing in the lake. Don’t you remember how large the waves got—?”
Jane really isn't as plain as she thought she was... But then again, David wasn't who she thought he was either... What is the one thing you would do if you could do magic? Would you cure the sick? Stop wars? Or never have another bad hair day??
Jane's problems are larger...end of the world problems and she's got to save more than herself....
In the small town of Caseville strange things have occurred…
From the time Jane Hensley was little, she knew she was different. Instead of hanging out with friends, she was often in the woods, alone, chanting magical words that filled her with power and effected the environment around her. A sudden summer storm on a perfectly sunny day. Monster waves crashing into the shores of Lake Huron. Strange things happening in nature with no rhyme or reason. Residents are mystified by these occurrences, but would never dream they could come from Plain Jane Hensley, the girl that was so quiet, it was like she wasn’t there at all.
But David Reynolds, the town’s football star, has noticed Jane. In fact he has been secretly in love with the strange girl for years. And on the morning of her sixteenth birthday, he is determined to finally reveal his heart to her. Instead David discovers Jane’s powerful secret. A secret that has brought a magical stranger to their town. One who claims to be a Pixie King, and entices Jane on a quest.
Now David must choose whether to allow the girl of his dreams to disappear forever. Or follow her on a journey that defies logic.
