A pint-sized dragon nobody else can see starts following her around, and the new boy in town almost kills her accidentally. Danielle must call on her own hidden power if she is to survive. More
Fourteen-year-old Danielle McGowan always suspected her imagination was seriously overactive. But when only she can see a small and unexpectedly sarcastic dragon who turns up and starts following her around, Danielle begins to worry she's actually losing her mind.
While going to school every day, trying to fit in and pretending her life is totally normal, Danielle must figure out who her true friends really are, and how her feelings for the new boy in town fit into her struggle to overcome danger she feels closing in on her.
But Danielle was born with a power she is just starting to understand. She must tap into her hidden strength, or die.
4.5 Star Average Review on GoodReads!
"I loved this book from start to finish because it keeps you intrigued throughout. You really bond with the main character of Danielle because you feel everything she feels as she discovers the new magical world she has suddenly been thrown into. From Dragons to Shadow creatures this book is a fun read and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I read this book in one sitting, and I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. Loved every page!" - Tracy, GoodReads

Not altogether terrible, but far too twee for me.
The dialogue is quite stiff, even when it's trying for funny, and the whole thing skews far younger than one would expect from the book's description.

Wonderful book. I really cared what happened to the characters, and I hope there's a sequel.
The action followed logically, and the characters' development made sense. There were almost no grammatical errors or typos -- just a few places where words ran together.
It's been a long time since I was in high school (I'm 71), but I can distinctly remember being an oddball, and certainly never part of the in crowd, but the setting the author painted rang true to me. I urge you to read the book!

My niece really loved this book. It's an adventure of self discovery with magic and dragons. She read the whole thing in two days.
