From the Publisher: Her mom's still dating losers. Her boyfriend's gone back to Mexico. Dad still hasn't told his wife and kids that she exists. At school, the drama queens and bullies still rule. But worst of all for Allie Emerson--aka the Star Seeker of an old Gypsy prophecy--is that her powers have taken a hike. She can't read minds anymore. She can't move stuff just by looking at it. The other Star Seekers are counting on her psychic gifts more than ever, and the evil Trimarks are closing in, eager to snatch her magic moonstone necklace while she's helpless. The hot new guy at school is ready and willing to fight her battles, but he comes with some wicked baggage.Dear Diary: I'm a little worried. My new BF is a demon.

Welcome again to Allie Emerson's funny, scary, amazing, and always unpredictable life, as the girl voted least likely to save the world from evil.
3 Stars

I have to admit, I liked this one better than the first. It feels like Marilee is really hitting her stride as far as writing and finding her character’s voices.

I didn’t like that Allie was with a different guy in this book. Even if I do like Beck better than Junior.

I’d like the mythology to be fleshed out a bit more instead of the story being driven by the “action” – what little action there is.

Everything always ends up tied into a neat little bow, but in reality none of the answers raised in even the first book have been answered.

It is an entertaining read though.
