Sophie has always felt out of step — an outsider, even amongst friends in her high school with all the hype about celebrity culture. Her life in L.A. seems to have been already written for her, but when her junior year starts, it all takes a drastic turn. When she crosses paths with the school’s heartthrob, Nate Werner, they fall for each other in a way neither can understand. What they don’t know is that by giving in to their desires, they are unlocking an ancient Egyptian prophecy that threatens to return Earth to the dark ages.
To undo the curse, Nate and Sophie embark on an adventure that takes them across the country. But their quest is not only to save the world as they know it. It is also a fight for their very survival. Behind the scenes, there are those that are counting on them to fail.
About the author (within her own words):
I’m Teresa Orts, a young adult fantasy author. My first novel, The Year of the Great Seventh, will be published by Drayton Press in July, 2013.
I enjoy reading novels that keep me at the edge of my seat—the ones that you can’t stop thinking about for months. I love traveling the world and living by my own rules, as well as small pleasures such as chocolate, the rain, and hanging out with friends.
