Tara Duncan and the Spellbindersby Princess Sophie Audouin-Mamikonian, William Rodarmor
Though only twelve years old, orphaned Tara has developed strange telekinetic powers that allow her to bend space and levitate others high above the ground, as if they are lighter than air. Her two best friends, Betty and Fabrice—often the victims of Tara’s uncontrollable abilities—are the only ones who know about Tara’s secret. Even her grandmother and caretaker, Isabella, doesn’t have a clue. That is until Tara learns that she is a spellweaver, descended from a long line of powerful magic-wielders born on the planet OtherWorld. Forced to flee her Earth home when Magister, the Master of the Bloodgraves, attacks, Tara escapes to planet Other- World, where she finds loyal friends and learns about her mysterious powers. But when Tara discovers that her mother is alive and being held captive by Magister, will she be able to save her?
Tara Duncan is an inspiring heroine, whose adventures and personal struggles will captivate readers already hooked by fantasy adventures and characters like Harry Potter. This is the first installment of the Tara Duncan series—an epic adventure full of magic and bravery that is sure to cast a spell on young readers!

This is an exceptional book that you cannot put down, no matter how hard you try. The suspense keeps you on your toes, while the comedy in the books balances out the seriousness that is so prevalent. The characters are enchanting, with their own mysterious backgrounds and secrets that you never expected. I got into Tara Duncan after seeing previews of the TV show on Boomerang Girls Rule! By the previews, I was intrigued by its setting and plot, and I started to watch the show. I fell in love with Cal and Tara, my favorite characters. I then looked up the book, and, seeing that it was written in French, I waited for the English translation. It was quite worth the wait, and I could not stop reading that book. I was quite excited to see Cal and Tara meet, since they are destined to be tog - sorry, spoilers! This book quickly became my favorite book. I recommend this book to everyone who loves adventure, romance, fantasy, and comedy.
