The girl voted least likely to save the world may have to do just that.
A sickly mom. A crappy travel trailer. High-school bullies and snarky drama queens. Bad guys with charming smiles. Allie has problems. And then there's that whole thing about fulfilling a magical prophecy and saving the world from evil. Welcome to the funny, sad, sometimes-scary world of 15-year-old Allie Emerson, who's struggling to keep her act together (not to mention her mom's) in the small-town world of Peacock Flats, Washington.
A zap from an electrical fence 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 "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 far bigger than she ever imagined - If she can just survive everyday life, in the meantime.

"Marilee Brothers' novel stands out for its humor and Allie's strong point-of-view as an underdog finding her place in the world." (Grinnell College Libraries)
The story was fine with some quirky humor. It was told in first person point of view from the perspective of a 14 year old girl from Washington state. The reader seems to be a middle aged woman from the south, maybe the Carolinas? Honestly it bothered me through most of the story. Also there was this random music that played a few bars every once in awhile. What on Earth was it for? At first I thought it was a weird stupid clue, but then it was just annoying
