Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Aoife dreams of becoming an engineer who works on the powerful Engine that runs the city but lives with the ever-present fear of following in her family’s footsteps and going mad on her sixteenth birthday. When Aoife receives a strange message from her older brother, Conrad, and sets out to Arkham, her family home for answers, her constant companion and best friend and confidante, Cal risks his promising career to follow her. With the help of their guide, Dean, they hope to find answers from her father. Family or friends, Aoife must decide in whom she can confide and place her trust. For all is not what it seems. She must figure out what her special gift is and find the inner strength to fight against overwhelming odds.
