Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Wanderamid's Crystal Ball by @irenevphillips

Young Adult Fantasy
Date Published: June 2012

     A devious young girl, Devilea, tricks Emera, the powerful witch of Wanderamid, stealing her crystal ball and sending her through to another dimension. For the past three years, Emera has been living as Ms. Biddock, the principal of Whilom Elementary.
      On the last day of school, Emera crosses paths with Rena Winterton, a student who, soon after, discovers her hidden identity. To prevent Rena from revealing her long kept secret, Emera recites an incantation that will send Rena away to retrieve the clear stone she believes can bring her  home, Wanderamid's Crystal Ball. However, when the chosen spell emerges, Emera is 
surprised to see Rena already has it in her possession! She attempts to stop the spell, but her powers fail. It's too late! The summoning has begun and for Rena, an unexpected journey begins.
      An electrifying force directs her through a portal, leading to future encounters, as she ventures into an unfamiliar world. In this world between many, curses, revenge and magic delay Rena's search for her intended destination, the entryway back to her home town, Whilom.

This or That?

       I don't have either one. I listen to music at home or while driving in my car.

        I like both.

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?
        I'd have to choose Danielle Steel, since I've read many of her novels.

        Fantasy, because it's unpredictable and gives insight to new possibilities.

        I'll text only if the message is a short one, otherwise, I would rather talk.

        They both have their advantages and disadvantages. I choose Public School. If there were problems in the school, I would choose Home schooling.
