"Pure whimsical delight. Magic *does* blow throughout the world, and ZIP proves it!"—New York Times bestelling author Lauren Myracle 

one girl + one scooter = journey of a lifetime

When Lyssa’s mother died, so did the magic—that special something that always made the sunflowers grow taller and the strawberry jelly taste sweeter. So when Lyssa receives the alarming news that her childhood home in Texas is about to be bulldozed, she sets off on a two-wheeled cross country journey to save her family home—and with it, the last remaining sparkle of her earlier life. On her odyssey, Lyssa meets some decidedly unusual people—from rowdy cowgirls to a chorus line of singing mermaids—and discovers adventure at every highway turn. But it’s the magic that she uncovers, little by little, along the way that will ultimately put a new zip in her step!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rollins debuts with a clever, all-American retelling of Homer’s Odyssey, with 11-year-old Lyssa Lee in the role of Ulysses. After Lyssa’s mother died, Lyssa moved from Austin, Tex., to Washington State with her stepfather, Michael. But Michael can’t replace her mother, Ana Lee, a talented performer who made every day an adventure. When Lyssa mysteriously discovers a paper airplane bearing the message that her childhood home will be demolished, she travels to Texas via her scooter, Zip, to save the house and the memory of Ana Lee. Along the way, Rollins recasts the travails Ulysses faced in novel ways: the Lotus-Eaters become the reality TV–obsessed Lotus Crew, sirens sing at a burlesque club—and beware the hot tub at the Motel Charybdis. Rollins’s story moves at a fast clip, yet the numerous characters she introduces are well-drawn, from caring but awkward Michael to Penn (née Penelope), Lyssa’s acrobatic best friend in Austin. Slapstick humor and a sense of magic help maintain this affecting story’s levity as Lyssa learns to overcome her fears and accept change. Ages 8–12. Agent: Stephen Barbara, Foundry Literary + Media. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Janice DeLong
When Lyssa's mother dies and she is left with her step-father, it seems that light and magic have gone out of her life forever. Although Michael, the step-father, tries to do what is best for his newly acquired charge, Lyssa is lonely for the charm that was her singing, dancing mom. The only concrete connection to her mom is Lyssa's scooter, named Zip, which she believes was built for her by her biological father when she was much younger. Discovering a mysterious message, explaining that the home Lyssa shared with her mom—states away—is going to be demolished, the desperate tween heads out alone on Zip, determined to save the house. Along the way, Lyssa meets many strange and dramatic characters who later prove to be true friends, as does Michael. Although some reviewers may find this story enchanting, it also sends mixed messages about honesty, running away from home, and dealing with the death of a parent. Although it is a fantasy story, important lessons about the above subjects could be easily woven into the plot but they are not. This reviewer would suggest caution in recommending this book to its intended audience. Reviewer: Janice DeLong
School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—Lyssa can hardly say the words to acknowledge that her mother has died, and, with her death, the magic is gone. Her mom, a talented singer, let magic "float through her life like a breeze." She was imaginative and told Lyssa that she would have grand adventures. When Lyssa learns that her mom's former home is scheduled to be demolished, she knows she must return to Austin, Texas, to do whatever she can to save it from destruction. She leaves Washington and the home she shares with Michael, her stepfather, and sets off on her quest with little more than the $13 she has in her backpack. Her journey is both realistic and fanciful as she encounters a wide range of colorful characters. Zip, her trusted scooter, is her constant companion, but she hears her mother's voice encouraging and comforting her on her adventure. A sandwich reminds her of the perfect sandwiches Michael made for her and she realizes that she's starting to miss him and some of their shared experiences. Lyssa wants to find her own voice, just like her mother, and her journey helps her appreciate Michael and her new home. This is a clever novel with a bright and spunky heroine. Readers will root for her and empathize with her search to find her place in the world.—Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego

    Prophecy: Fire burns black... fire burns bright... the world is at night... a fight...~~~~~ you: you are a MysticDragon She-roar, and you were born in the middle of a fight. The prophecy seems to have your name, Blackfire. You have fought in the war for twelve dragon years. The war happened because: the MysticDragons had very little territory. A small island made of stone and has only lizards to eat. Your young were dying of hunger and thirst, so you decided to strike war with the RainbowDragons, who lived on the main continent of Saroa, in the rainforest. You allied the IceDragons and the SeaDragons. The DesertDragons and FireDragons and LightDragons teamed up against you and also to take the rainforest. The NightDragons and WindDragons joined with the RainbowDragons. The EarthDragons and GoldDragons and IronDragons went against the FireDragons and others, while putting up resistance to the rest. The StarDragons and SunDragons and MoonDragons allied the SkyDragons and fought against the MysticDragons and with the IronDragons. The DiamondDragons stayed out of the war. Types and descriptions: MysticDragons; black scales and long thin snouts like a crocodile. They are thin and quick. Their wings are very lightweight, providing easy flight. They can see through walls and can look at objects using water. RainbowDragons; they are color shifting and live in a rainforest. They are fierce and strong, but not too smart. They tend to get fat but they throw up rainbows when they are scared. Their rainbow throw-up is not just gross, it is acidic and will sting you, without any further harm they make a get away. IceDragons; they are whitish bluish and can shoot tendrils of ice from their nose. They are cold to the touch and have jagged claws. They have spiked scales all over as to blend in. Their stare will make you freeze. SeaDragons: they are deep blue and great swimmers. They can breath underwater but with difficulty on land. Webbed claws make it hard to claw someone, but easier to swim. They can shoot boiling hot water up to five talons! They have giant tails that can make a tsunami. They have frills and powerful jaws to break clams. DeserDragons; they are a sandy color with a scorpian tail. They can shoot a small blaze of fire. Their scales can prick up like a porqupine, but much shorter and harder to pull off. They have large claw, to quickly hide themselves by digging under the sand. FireDragons; they are red orange and can hold a blaze for up to five minutes. Their fire is so hot it scalds the IronDragon's scales. LightDragons; they glow in the dark but in sunlight they are a pale white. They have three tails. The tips of their tales expose holes, where a white glowing goop shoots out. This goop is imposible to remove and will sollidify. NightDragons; they are black with white under bellies. They have silvery faces and can shoot sparkling black dust. This dust will eat away at anything alive, even putting the dragon that shot it at risk! WindDragons; they are pale grey with white underbellies. They can control wind and are wonderful fliers. They have massive wings and fans at the end of their tails. They can race a cheetah... and win! As long as they are in the sky. EarthDragons; they are brownish grayish and live in the swamp. They have strong scales and can hold their breath for an hour and a half, every hour they automatically come up to breath. (Continued on next result!)

    Lazulihearts wonders chapter one

    Lazulikit woke up cold and wet. She shivered and said, "Enderstar?" Her father was greencough and the leader of Desertclan, so he was no help in response. "Diamondribbon?" She called her mother's name. This time, it happened. The silver she named Diamondribbon closed her blue eyes and pulled Lazulikit up. That was when she realized that she was sleeping just under ice in the water. Shadowkit. He had played a trick on her. Diamondribbon carried her into the leader's den, where she slept in a hole lined with ivy leaves and herbs. Abruptly, Enderstar screamed, "Sandstorm!" Diamondheart, not hearing Enderstar form the far corner, went hunting. "Mommy!" Lazulikit shrieked, along with her littermates Icekit, Splatterkit, and Badgerkit. The sand was getting to Enderstar. He coughed badly and fell asleep. Unfortunately, they never saw his eyes open again. They never felt a breath on their faces when they rubbed against his face. Time to face the wild. They all spread long for Starclan, aiming for a new life.
