Allie is on summer vacation and, as usual, she is her normal overly responsible self. In addition to taking care of her mother, Faye, she is working for her Uncle at his fruit stand and takes on an additional job-watching Principal Hostetler's adopted son, Chad. It just so happens that Faye is now dating the principal as if poor Allie doesn't have enough to worry about!
Beck is off to college early and has stopped calling her (a fact that his twin Nicole notes is because he has a new girlfriend), Junior is back from Mexico with a fab gift (1976 Chevy Caprice-Shiny blue and fully loaded!) and a new hottie, Ryker, is on the horizon. Not to mention the fact that she's a star seeker!
Ryker, who keeps calling Allie "Ava", is extremely good looking but his behavior is strange, as in not of this world strange. He suddenly shows up working for her uncle at the fruit stand and he seems to get along well with Principal Hostetler's son, Chad, who insists he sees pixies.
It doesn't take to long before Allie is on a new adventure, this time to Boundless, where she finds out she is part faery. Princess Avalon is Allies real name and she is the granddaughter to Melia, Queen of the forest faeries. Melia is Faye's mother; the mother that she thought was gone to her forever. Allie AKA Princess Avalon is soon on a quest to save the forest faeries and to help Chad, a changeling, return to Boundless.
This is a fun book that has action, romance, fantasy, comedy and mystery. As with all of Marilee's books, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Allie is one of my favorite Heroines; she is spunky, funny and doesn't take herself to seriously. Marilee has a way of writing that just draws you in, you find yourself turning the pages furiously to see what happens next. I also love her comedic sense and I find that Marilee has a unique way of carrying off humor that so many authors miss.
I've read everything she's written and will continue to do so!
