This newest Fairy Godmother Academy tale focuses on Kerka’s adventures in Aventurine, a dreamland where fairy godmothers–to-be receive their training. Since her mother’s death, Kerka’s relationship with her sisters has deteriorated. Biba, the youngest, has retreated into silence while Rona immerses herself in her ballet studies. Only Kerka continues to practice the Kalis dance, which is an integral part of their family’s fairy-godmother heritage. In Aventurine, Kerka learns that the fate of her Pax Lineage lies in the success of a seemingly impossible quest: to discover Biba’s voice. On her journey, Kerka befriends a hapless reindeer, eludes a mysterious wolf and outwits several wily elves. Bozarth adeptly distinguishes Kerka’s tale from the previous novel, Birdie’s Book (2009). Kerka’s feisty spirit will endear her to readers as she struggles to cope with her loss and reunite her sisters. With a heroine who relies upon her ingenuity to save both herself and others, this sparkling combination of action and magic is bound to enchant. (Fantasy. 8-12)
