Zara Norland has a problem. It's getting harder to hide who-or what-she is. Which is pretty ironic, actually. Because Zara doesn't know who, or what, she is. Her sixteenth birthday is just around the corner, and according to all the fairy tales and legends, something is about to happen. If you have unexplainable powers or a mysterious past-and Zara has both-something huge happens on your sixteenth birthday, right? Zara has never found fairy tales particularly helpful. But she has a feeling that this time, the old legends are right on the money. Here comes trouble.
I was not sure what to expect when I started reading Wicked Cool, but what I found is a fantastic story filled with endearing characters and an interesting and original story.
Wicked Cool is written as if you were reading the personal journal of the main character Zara as she goes through some major changes in her life.
Zara Norland is about to turn 16, add to that her special powers and the fact that she has no idea what she is or how to control her powers and you have what will be an interesting adventure.
Lance is a Spellspinner and he plans to find out just what the deal is with Zara, since she isn't supposed to exist. What he finds is a willful young woman who is more than a handful.
Wicked Cool is a fantastic coming of age story. Well written and vividly descriptive, it is a great addition to any library.
