Life couldn’t be better, until one afternoon when Shelby disappears for the afternoon, Roseabelle is sent home and discovers that her mom has been kidnapped by another country. She, Jessicana and Astro must journey to that other country, Darvonia, and rescue Danette before it’s too late. On the way they will have many adventures and there will be peril and treachery. Will the three young friends make it?
This was a really cute book. I thought that it was well written, the author is only 11, I think that if she can write this well and show this much imagination at this age, we all better watch out, because she’s going to be writing some amazing stuff. The story was easy to follow, I thought it was engaging and I’m a mom, can’t wait to find out what my own 11 year-old thinks of it!
