I have to agree with the editor about Marilee Brother’s style of writing. She smoothly and brilliantly combines the intelligent and the goofy for a realistic teen story. Moonstone is an adventure that lets you walk in the shoes of a unique girl, Allie Emerson. She has taken care of her mother most of her life and is only turning 15. As a responsible teen, she has no need for the incredible silliness of her best friend. However, she sticks with her to protect her from the local bully, baking up her promises with physical pain if needed.

Allie just wants to be a normal teen, with normal worries and responsibilities. But that doesn’t seem to be in her cards. Things get interesting pretty quickly as strange things start to happen.

This story does have a little language in it, in keeping with teens and the need to be tough or get beat up. But don’t let that keep you from enjoying a gypsy’s tale come true. Allie is a tough young lady who has to stay one step ahead of the adults in her world who are trying to hurt everyone she cares about, along with tracking down the father she never knew. Then there’s the dreamy, but dangerous?, guy who wants to be her boyfriend, kinda.

There is plenty to keep you interested in this story. I couldn’t put it down.
