Life was pretty simple for Anna. She had two best friends, Eve and Syd, did pretty well in school, and actually didn't worry about all those boy problems. Life was so simple, until Mrs. Rosemont, her neighbor that she used to help, passed away and left her a deck of tarot cards. Well, that and the crazy cat, Mouli.

Of course Anna didn't really believe in tarot cards. It seems impossible for a deck of cards to tell the future. But when Anna and her two friends put the cards to a test, the answers are more accurate than she would have imagined. What exactly did Anna ask? Or rather who did Anna ask about? Well, none other than Declan Kelso, the geek who grew up over the summer and became the "Greek God." All the girls at school are beginning to fall for the new and improved Declan, and unfortunately for Anna, so is she.

But the cards do say that Anna does have a chance with Declan, just as long as she gets a new look and can actually get Declan to notice her. Let's just hope that the girls read the cards right, because a wrong misinterpretation of the cards could possibly spell disaster.

The first in the series, LOVE takes high school drama to another level, a supernatural level you might say. Mariah Fredericks creates a cast of characters that are hilarious and total opposites of one another. The reader can't help but start to laugh out loud at all the embarrassing moments that the characters face. Waiting for the next novel in the series now seems like a full-time job.
