Can one (super smart) girl
(who just wants to be discovered)
decipher the cryptic Mayan calendar prophecy and SAVE THE WORLD?
When her safe-cracker mom and code-breaker dad inherit a dreary Scottish castle, sixteen-year-old Caity Mac Fireland is not happy. Ripped from her cushy life and friends in San Francisco, Caity’s secret fantasy of being discovered by a Hollywood agent, talent scout, or even just a pageant coach seems more unlikely than ever.
But when Caity stumbles across a hidden room in the castle, its walls covered in strange symbols, her life takes a bizarre turn. She finds herself center stage in an international conspiracy involving warring secret societies, assassins, the suppressed revelations of the Mayan Calendar and the year 2012, plus the fate of humanity.
With the help of her friend Justine back home, and Alex, a gorgeous and mysterious Scottish boy, Caity must race to decipher the code and reveal its message to the world before time runs out.
This is a pretty good book. Caity is a girl anyone can relate to, because she is just a normal girl hoping for something bigger, but is surprised when it comes. She is disappointed by the unexpected move and has unconditional crushes just like any girl of her age. She does seem a little too innocent at first, a sixteen year old who never lies to her parents? That never happens. She gets guilty and whinny, but that is just nature for girls. The story line will catch anyone's attention from the get go, and while you read, you learn. But of course it is stuff that would interest you. If you aren't interested in the twenty twelve scandal or the Mayan calendar, then I wouldn't recommend this book to you, but if you are, I would definitely suggest you read it, because it puts a whole new spin on things.
