The Girl, the Dragon and the Wild Magic

The Girl, the Dragon and the Wild Magic

by Dave Luckett
Think: Harry Potter for girls. A charming, magical story of a girl whose magic goes wrong -- in all the right ways.

Rhianna is failing out of magic school. She's rather clumsy, even though she tries real hard. After she causes her biggest mess ever, a wizard appears with some astonishing news - Rhianna's magic is, in fact, stronger than anyone else's. She's a Wild Talent, which means that she possesses a pure form of magic that is full of power and energy. The hitch? Well, it's very hard to control the wild magic. And it tends to suck up all the other magic around it. So when a dragon comes to town, it's up to Rhianna to save the day . . . if she can.
