Three teenage girls are given a gift that will change their lives forever. A tale of untamed magic, the test of true friendship and unraveling generations of untold secrets. Follow Alex and her two best friends, Emma and Ruby, on an enchanted adventure; A thrilling ride to discovering their history and what it will mean for their future. A journey to understanding that they are different in ways beyond their imagination.
If you are a fan of fantasy and sisterhood, Alexandrite is the book for you. The plot is original and keeps you vested in the 3 leading ladies. This is an exciting introduction of a series that will have readers coming back for more. I highly recommend this book for young girls ages 11 and up. No harsh curse words, no sexual situations. This could be the series of books that get your girls into reading.
Secrets are unlocked when Alex, Ruby and Emma are each given a necklace. Each having a power unbeknownst to each other. When things start happening that are unexplained, the girls start putting the puzzle pieces together and demand answers from Alex's Mom and Emma and Ruby's Dad.
This is an interesting story/series that I believe any YA/fantasy fan would like. I know book 2 is in the writing stage.
