Moonstone

Allie's day doesn't start out right. Climbing up on the roof to fix the TV antenna in flip-flops isn't the smartest plan. She falls off the ladder and into the bull pen. Immediately, the bull isn't happy and come charging at her. Frightened almost to death, she realizes that the bull is running backwards on her command! Freaked, she doesn't know what to do. She confides in her best friend, who looks at the star on her palm and understands. Allie is special: she has powers. She gives Allie a moonstone necklace that has been in her family for generations. At first, Allie isn't convinced. But she's visited by a fairy godmother (Sort of) where she passes three tests and gains more power. The necklace helps her to read minds. But someone's after the necklace and they'll stop at nothing to get it. When her best friend is brutally attacked, Allie knows she needs help. She turns to tough Junior, knowing she can trust him. Trust might lead her into falling for him. When her mom goes missing, she fears for the worst. Can she use her powers to save her mom...and more importantly herself?

A great start to a new series filled romance, paranormal, finding yourself, and family drama which just equals fun. I love how Allie discovers something new about herself, that changes her outlook on life. I'm already looking forward to the next book.

OT - I see that you've posted the YouTube clip of L.H. Anderson reading her Speak poem (http://yabooknerd.blogspot.com/2009/02/laurie-halse-anderson-speak-poem.html).

Do you know where one might find the text of the poem? I know an English teacher who's taught the book and would love to explore a hard copy with her class.

Thanks.
