With Pretty Omens, A. LaFaye has crafted a mesmerizing novel-in-verse inspired by the epic tradition of the myth of Cassandra that will transport you to a small Virginia mountain community where an ordinary girl becomes a hero.
Kyna has a deep-seated (and well-earned) fear of the water. So when her adoptive parents announce that they have rented a summer house on Lake Champlain, she begs to be left behind for the summer. Alas, this is not possible. Yet even at the lake Kyna does her best to avoid the water. But when her new friend, Tylo, draws her into his quest for strange water creatures, Kyna finds herself pulled into unexpected discoveries.
