The Secret Society Of The Pink Crystal Ball

By Risa Green

Summary: In a world where nothing is certain, a little magic couldn't hurt...right?

When Erin Channing's favorite aunt dies, Erin is bequeathed a pink crystal ball and a set of weird instructions. Granted, Aunt Kiki (aka Aunt Kooky) always lived "outside the box." But now Erin and her two best friends are convinced that the pink crystal ball holds the key to their future-or at least the key to getting dates...

Consider Your Fate to Be Sealed . . .

Absolute knowledge is not unlimited; let the planets be your guide to the number. There are sixteen ways to die, but four of them you will never see.The future belongs to you alone. Other voices will be disappointed.One rotation is as far as you can see. Only uncertainty lies beyond.

My Thoughts: When I first glanced at this book, I thought to myself, "This looks really cute!" My kind of read! Cutesy yet neat! I than got a copy of it, and I began reading. The first 20 pages I thought to myself, "This feels really tween, do I want to keep reading it?" I'm glad I did. At first it did feel really tweenish but than I began to really enjoy it. I'm more into young adult novels and not too tweenish. We meet Erin who is a high school student. She has the highest GPA in the class. She has two best friends named Samantha and Lindsay. First off, 5 lucky students are going to be chosen to go on a trip to Italy and Erin wants nothing more to go. She has to write an essay on why she should be chosen. Of course Erin's whole life is boring, boring, boring. What is she going to write about that makes her stand out? All of a sudden her aunt dies, she actually gets hit by lightning! What happened to normal? Her aunt leaves her a pink crystal ball. She than gets paired up with Jesse on a art project. Yes, the boy is pretty dreamy and Erin's first kiss was with him years ago! What is she going to do? The girls start to ask the pink crystal ball questions, and the questions start turning into reality and happen. Erin, Lindsay, and Samantha are thrown into a big mess of consequences and Jesse ends up falling in too. This book was full of so much fun rather it be romance, mean girls, consequences, music. What happens to Erin? Read the book now to find out.

Overall: I was a little iffy going into this one, but it was actuall
y a fun book. I enjoyed reading it and finished it in one setting. If your looking for something light that doesn't take too much thought, this is a book to pick up. Its more fun than anything.

Cover: Awesome cover, its what caught my attention. Of course the pink crystal ball just adds to it! The cover is really creative and pretty.

Tweenish is OK with me since I teach them and sometimes have trouble handing them some of my YA books. I will have to check this one out. Thanks for the review.
