The average ten-year-old girl seldom travels far from home. She doesn't worry about being kidnapped by witches or imprisoned in medieval castles where children meet their unspeakable demise. She rarely gives thought to curses, potions and magic. She certainly isn't concerned about risking life and limb to decipher ancient rites and lost treasures.

But Liberty Frye is about to discover that she is not just an average girl.

When a cryptic note from long-lost relatives arrives, the news it brings flips Libby’s small-town existence upside down. Soon, she finds herself lured to a foreign land where mystery, spells and the dark stuff of fairy tales await. It’s up to Libby to unravel the sinister plot that brought her there in the first place, but in so doing, she’ll uncover a shocking secret that will change her life forever...if she survives the challenge.

I absolutely loved this book. It starts off a bit slow for the first few chapters, but even early on there are hints of the adventure to come. Once the main story gets under way around chapter 5 or so, there is no slowing down. The main character, Libby is a fun and spunky girl who is inquisitive and brave and her sidekick, Ginny Gonzales is loyal and funny. I don't want to spoil the story for others by revealing too much here, so I won't say much more other than to say that I'm really glad I took a chance on this under-the-radar story and I really hope to see more from this author in the future.
Good Points
