{Synopsis} –Before the enchantment breaks, Selkie thinks she's just an average teenage girl…

It's the beginning of summer vacation, and everyone at Selkie Stewart's Boston high school is excited. Except for Selkie, who sees herself standing at the edge of an abyss of Nothing To Do. Selkie doesn't want to spend her summer scouring the kitchen for gnomes with her crazy aunts or mooning over the enigmatic boy on Boston Common. So instead Selkie goes in search of a job. What she finds is a new best friend, a cute boy who might be more than he seems, and even more question about her mother and her past — and a sense that Selkie's adventures are just beginning.

{My Thoughts} – Selkie wants to be normal. She tries to tell herself that she can be normal if she tries hard enough. She wants to believe that she can do normal things, go out with her friends, date, have a job etc… Selkie is anything but normal though and sooner or later she will realize it.

The best thing about this series is that it’s about a teenage girl that thinks she has to be just like everyone else. That she has to conform to what is considered the norn of everyone around her. She was home schooled and now attends High School. She has no friends and her Aunts are incredibly strange.

She is a pocketer, in other words she collects random things and keeps them in her pockets in case she may need them another time in her life. It’s interesting that she gets a job working for someone that does nearly the same thing. Has shelves full of discarded unwanted items in her store.

She gets her job through the help of another girl from school. This is where we get to know more about Kelsey. I have to admit I love her character as much as I love Selkie and Ben’s.

This was a really nice short story that helped to give more insight on the storyline. I can’t wait to read book number two. This series is definitely one that I find enjoyable and entertaining!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
