Publisher's Summary

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 13 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.

A Good Listen and Cool Story

This book gave what it promised...adventure around every corner, er page. I laughed so many times when I wasn't on the edge of my seat wondering how Anne would get out of each predicament. A good listen!

Great!

It is funny and has a lot of adventure, good for all ages, there is a second book but I don't think it's on audible.
