Moonstone (Unbidden Magic #1) by Marilee Brothers

    Moonstone (Unbidden Magic #1) by Marilee Brothers

(Book Description)
 MOONSTONE A Fiction wise Fantasy bestseller Young Adult A sickly mom. A tiny house trailer. High school bullies and snarky drama queens. Bad-guy dudes with charming smiles. Allie has problems. And then there's that whole thing about fulfilling a magical prophecy and saving the world from evil. Geez. Welcome to the sad, funny, sometimes-scary world of fifteen-year-old Allie Emerson, who's struggling to keep her and her mom's act together in the small-town world of Peacock Flats, Washington. An electrical zap from a TV antenna sets off Allie's weird psychic powers. The next thing she knows she's being visited by a hippy-dippy guardian angel, and then her mysterious neighbor, the town "witch," gives her an incredible moonstone pendant that has powers only a good-hearted "Star Seeker" is meant to command. "Who, me?" is Allie's first reaction. But as sinister events begin to unfold, Allie realizes she's got a destiny to live up to. If she can just survive everyday life, in the meantime.
Moonstone was an okay book It has the potential to be really good as long as the characters grow throughout the rest of the books.  The story is pretty simple. It basically involves Allie discovering her powers and trying to keep away from bad people. There are really no twists or turns in the book it’s all pretty much straight forward. 

Allie (aka Alfreida Carlotta) lives with her mother who is faking an Illness to get money from the state because she refuses to get a job.  If that's not bad enough, she lands in the field with Blaster the bull and he's not happy at all. That is when things start to get a little strange!  Blaster charges Allie and is dead set to gore her but she somehow manages to stop him and she has no clue how she did it. 

She ends up with a ghostly guide who is more hippie than helper and her mentor and friend gives her a Moonstone that she says is prophesied to be hers. Allie finds out that she may be part of a prophecy involving two ancient races that have been fighting each other for centuries.

I’m still reading the rest of the series I’m writing reviews as I go. Besides the fact that it was a very simple read it's meant for teens and it reads like it is exactly that. If you can look past that then it really is a good read. I kept going because I wanted to find out what happens next.
