Although the preview was odd with no summary this book was absolutely amazing. Since there was no summary i suppose i should give away the summary i feel wouldnt be spoiling anything for you guys. This book is closely associated with the title of course and its about a home and a school life for an odd girl. I font want to spoil too much but i should tell you that i craved this book as if it was a candy bar. Putting my nook down was like not eating for a week start. You guys should read this book although you dont think youll like it you can give it a shoot. It was amazing and i didnt think i would like it because of the basic genre. But i couldnt believe my eyes and from there i just kept readers. 5 out of 5 is my review because of how great this book was put together. Enjoy my fellow nook readers bevause trust me you wont regret it.

I honestly don't see what all the hoopla is all about. Judging from the reviews, you would think this is one of the best books known to man. Since there's no synopsis, I'll try to give you one without spoiling anything. This book is about a girl who can read the stars, obviously. So she meets this new guy at school, and she notices there's something different about him, which is odd because she's pretty weird herself. Shortly after they form an alliance, her whole world gets turned upside down and she learns things about herself that will change her life forever. Oh boy, how many times have we come across this plot line before? However it does have it's own twist that kept my attention. But overall, it's okay.

This is a series but the other books are only like $3.99 each. It is totally worth your time. This book is about a girl who has to find out who she truly is to have any future. She has 2 moms who are total opposite and give her different skills. 1 mom is in touch with her iner gypsy side and teaches her to read the, supposed future, with cards, salt, and the best, the stars. Her other mom is a lawyer who helps her devise plans and make informed, smart, decisions. She is a little bit of a hermit with no friends, has her own style, and is totally fine with it. That is, until she meets a boy who is mysteriously in and out of school. Now all her plans to talk to him seem lame and she gets that wierd feeling when she sees him. Even when she uses all her ways of reading the future she suddenly gets nothing. Then her life turns upside down.1 of her moms goes, what seems crazy, she comes home to find her house destroyed, and both parental figures missing. If she wants to save her family she will need the help of the guy from school and the, suppose to be dead, founder of her city. To save her family she will have to uncover her true identity along with her destiny, and fufill the phrophecy and save her REAL home. The OTHERWORLD!!!! I hope this review helps-TMD

The book doesn't have the best start, but it instantly gets better. I really enjoyed it. I wish it was longer, the end left me in suspense.

I loved this book but i was alzo very mad 2find out that the next book was $8. But i request this book to anyone who i guess likes to read!!! I know that this is a little off the topic of this book but if u are reading this then u hav to go to the nook store and get the book " if he had been with me" the book literally changed my life. i am still sad about when finny died in the end trying to break up with his girlfriend so that he could finally be together with autum the girl he really loves. Also read the book "rules of attraction" this book was so touching. I hope u go out and buy these books because they r wonderful
