A thrilling debut novel where fantasy and science fiction meet, dragons aren't as innocent as they look, and nothing is quite what it seems.
Anne has spent most of her thirteen years dreaming of the day she and her best friend Penelope will finally leave Saint Lupin's Institute for Perpetually Wicked and Hideously Unattractive Children. When the big day arrives, a series of very curious happenings lead to Anne being charged with an epic quest. Anne, Penelope, and new questing partner Hiro have only days to travel to strange new locales, solve myriad riddles, and triumph over monstrous foes--or face the horrible consequences.
Packed with action, humor, and endless heart, this debut novel marks the first volume in an irresistible and original fantasy series.

Hilarious, genuine, and pretty much awesome! A little confusing at first, but still a great book.

Anne: But there's… there's something moving around up there.
Jocelyn: [laughs] Oh, that was probably me. My apologies if I caused any undue stress.
Anne: Do you roar and shoot flames at people?
Jocelyn: Only when I miss my midmorning tea. [chuckles] I'm kidding, dear, of course. But come, we mustn't dillydally.

There are two kinds of adventure:

1) The kind that involves unicorns and lollipops.
2) The kind that involves escaping from a prison-like orphanage, falling off an exploding mountain, and getting fireballed by a dragon (or possibly eaten by a zombie shark).

This is a story about the second kind.
