Arista is a captivating and believable character and it's hard not to appreciate her struggles in this great story.

I started reading this and could not put it down; Arista struggles with bullies and an alcoholic mother, while a young man realizes, but is helpless to ease her pain. Gray’s mix of fantasy and present-day actions heighten the tension, leaving this reader dying to know the eleventh question. I was quite pleased with the results. Highly recommended.

Review by: Rick Mallery on Oct. 22, 2012 : star star star star star
A teenage girl struggles with bullies at school and home. A boy in South America becomes an apprentice for a seer.

One character must overcome her dysfunctional external world, the other must overcome his apparently dysfunctional internal world.

Dianne Gray weaves the two interconnected stories together with a tender touch. The reader feels not just empathy, but a deep satisfaction with the outcome.

I highly recommend!
