Plenty of kids would do anything for magic powers, but for 12-year-old Tara Duncan, the ability to send friends and enemies flying is a nuisance - and a mystery. No one seems to understand what's going on, least of all Tara's strict grandmother Isabella, until Tara learns a secret that will shake her understanding of everything she thought she knew. Performer Carmela Corbett's delightful English accent is a perfect fit for this story, which is sure to please fans of Harry Potter and similarly magical tales.
Tara Duncan is not your ordinary 12-year-old - she has a very special and magical secret!
Though only 12 years old, orphaned Tara has developed strange telekinetic powers that allow her to bend space and levitate others high above the ground, as if they are lighter than air. Her two best friends, Betty and Fabrice - often the victims of Tara’s uncontrollable abilities - are the only ones who know about Tara’s secret. Even her grandmother and caretaker, Isabella, doesn’t have a clue. That is until Tara learns that she is a spellweaver, descended from a long line of powerful magic-wielders born on the planet Other-World.
Forced to flee her Earth home when Magister, the Master of the Bloodgraves, attacks, Tara escapes to planet Other-World, where she finds loyal friends and learns about her mysterious powers. But when Tara discovers that her mother is alive and being held captive by Magister, will she be able to save her?
Tara Duncan is an inspiring heroine, whose adventures and personal struggles will captivate readers already hooked by fantasy adventures and characters like Harry Potter. This is the first installment of the Tara Duncan series - an epic adventure full of magic and bravery that is sure to cast a spell on young listeners!

Excellent book! I bought it for my daughter and I thought it sounded good so I read/listened to it too. It was very good, much better than I expected. Great adventure and characters! If you like Harry Potter, I think this would be something you would enjoy too!
