Phyllis, the author, is my dad's amazing and delightful cousin. The main character (called Matt Howard) IS Phyllis...her sense of humor, her self-effacing personality. This story brings together all of the 2012 prophecies made by different ancient civilizations, which really are fascinating. Phyllis weaves them into the story of an archaeology professor and her daughter. The book was fun and interesting, but my favorite part was the reference to a wise old lady named Hazel that the main character didn't pay enough attention to when she had the chance. Hazel is my great-aunt, who passed away last summer...what a sweet tribute!
