When Amanda travels east to Orlando on a hunch, she’s met with the worst news possible. Kingdom Keeper, Finn Whitman, is missing. Calling on her own gift (she’s telekinetic), her sister Jess’s ability to dream the future, and their fellow Fairlie, Matty Weaver’s, unexplained ability to read minds through physical contact, the three gifted girls must navigate treachery, deception and the stubborn, unwilling parents of the missing Keepers if they’re to save their friends.
My stomach was knotted and tight. After everything we'd been through in the past eight years, Amanda was the closest thing I had to family. Not for the first time since she’d left on her quest to communicate with Finn, I wished she were back. I wished I could look over to her side of our dorm room and hear her snoring. I wished I knew she was safe.
Sitting in the dark, empty room, I felt alone in a way I hadn't felt in years. Amanda and I had been together longer than we'd been with anyone else. While that connection could feel smothering at times, it was also reassuring to know that she was there for me.
Now she was off in Orlando on an adventure of her own. I felt the panic set in. Every wind was Maleficent's chill blast; the trees outside seemed bewitched to grab me from my bed. In my overactive imagination, even the jovial kids downstairs were OTKs plotting evil deeds.
I understood the signs of paranoia. I also knew when I was right.
