book one of 
synopsis (goodreads)
MOONSTONE A Fictionwise Fantasy bestseller Young Adult
 A sickly mom. A tiny house trailer. High school bullies and snarky drama queens. Bad-guy dudes with charming smiles. Allie has problems. And then there's that whole thing about fulfilling a magical prophecy and saving the world from evil. Geez. Welcome to the sad, funny, sometimes-scary world of fifteen-year-old Allie Emerson, who's struggling to keep her and her mom's act together in the small-town world of Peacock Flats, Washington. An electrical zap from a TV antenna sets off Allie's weird psychic powers. The next thing she knows she's being visited by a hippy-dippy guardian angel, and then her mysterious neighbor, the town "witch," gives her an incredible moonstone pendant that has powers only a good-hearted "Star Seeker" is meant to command. "Who, me?" is Allie's first reaction. But as sinister events begin to unfold, Allie realizes she's got a destiny to live up to. If she can just survive everyday life, in the meantime.


What a fabulous book! I absolutely loved the characters. Allie isn't some rich, spoiled bratty kid who comes into supernatural powers. She and her mom live in a trailer in the backyard owned by a step uncle. Allie has a wonderful friend named Kizzy who helps with her newfound 'abilities'. What are her abilities? Well, she discovers, quite by accident, that she has telekinetic power. WOW...this is a unique book. Very different from the many of the other paranormal books I've read. 

Aliie becomes a member of an elite group who are sworn to protect the world from the evil enemy. She has a small star on her palm and a moonstone necklace given to her by 'the Guardian', aka, Kizzy. 

Her life is turned upside down because of these bizarre changes.

Wonderful book, wonderful characters. They are rich and engaging. 
I can't wait to read the second book in the series.
