Book Blurb (via Amazon):

When Pearl’s best friend Sky, the unicorn, is turned evil through magic, Pearl must travel to find the ingredients she needs for the cure. Can she find all of the ingredients to make the potion that will cure her friend? Or will she find out that the magic she needed was within her all along?

My Thoughts

For such a young writer, this story is incredibly imaginative. Although short, there’s friendship, betrayal, hope, and kindness all shown in a short space. Pearl’s heroics are admirable in her attempts to save her friend and there’s even a few twists in the tale too.

I think that this is a great start for such a young writer.
