—with her raspberry hair, her snake tattoos, and her well-developed crime skills…
No one would guess she’s hiding a tragic secret: her sister Haley’s dying of an illness no one can diagnose, and Reeno’s stealing to help out with a little extra money. But poof, one tiny screw-up and the most accomplished teen burglar in California is sentenced to Bad Girl School.It turns out maybe that’s the place to be—Reeno quickly discovers a secret about herself–she’s psychic. To her amazement, her fellow school psychics have found each other and formed their own club, the Ozone Rangers. With the help of the Rangers, Reeno finds out Haley’s disease is the result of an ancient Mayan curse. And A.B., the group’s magical, cuddly, but extremely sinister non-faculty adviser, claims he knows how to break it.
All Reeno has to do is time-travel to an ancient Mayan city and steal a little item A.B. needs to save the world. Since she’s an ace thief, he has complete confidence she can do it before the outraged Mayans can chop off her head and use it for a soccer ball. Plenty of thrills and chills along the way in this action-packed girls’ adventure! Along with first love, some fascinating new friends, and a cat so bad you can’t help but love him.
But the real star is Reeno herself, at first a sad but brave girl who sees no way out of a horrible tragedy until she’s called upon by fate–and her love for her sister– to develop skills she didn’t know she had in an adventure of–we might as well say it–real life magic that will take every ounce of her courage and ability. She’ll make you laugh at her plucky wit, delight you with her quick thinking, and she may even move you to tears with her deep feelings for her friends and family. (Not to mention a certain really cute guy.)
EVER WONDER WHY THE WORLD DIDN’T END IN 2012? YOU CAN THANK REENO DIMOND, TEEN BURGLAR
