Imagine if David Sedaris or Chuck Klosterman were forced to narrate Harry Potter. Now, instead of a British boy going to a British boarding school, imagine an Egyptian-American girl going to public school...in Texas.
Welcome to the homogeneous setting of Plaintown, Texas (the town’s like Wonder Bread, but whiter) where Davy Crockett Junior High 7th grader Amira doesn’t ask for much. She just wants to fit in, defeat her arch-nemesis in swimming, and speak a coherent sentence in front of her crush, Kyle. Unfortunately, that’s hard to do since Amira’s the protector of a magical orb that mustn’t fall into the hands of a dark, powerful secret society. This task, however, proves especially difficult since Amira doesn’t realize she’s the orb’s protector. Further, Amira must contend with a pack of wolves who want her dead, at least one assassin hot on her trail, vivid nightmares of being chased by a man with purple eyes, and a dangerous lack of rhythm. So can Amira defeat a sinister, uber-powerful group armed with only her wits, a small group of misfit friends, a sweet little brother, and an ostrich? To find out, please read THE OSTRICH: A TALE OF FLIGHTLESS ADVENTURE (BOOK 1 OF THE QISTONE TRILOGY).
