                    It is telling about a girl named Emily. She lost her dad in a car crash and moved with her mom and brother. They find an amulet and meet a relative. This book has 7 more books after this one. Elves, Amulet, Sonekeepers, and a brother this book has it all. This is a graphic novel. It is sooooo good I read it more than once.
