Poor Danu. She wished her dad had let her stay at home when he went for a one-year archaeological assignment in South America. At home, Danu had loads of friends, pets she adored, was a fantastic student, and was very content.

Not so much when her dad arranged for her to live with her aunt in a tiny apartment. Her aunt doesn't like it any more than Danu does. Danu thinks that by being rebellious and not doing her school work, she will be sent back home. No such luck. Plus, with that type of behavior, people who don't know her are definitely not impressed.

When Danu decides to leave the boring, dull, and lonely apartment and walk around the boring, dull, and lonely city, she finds an area of town absolutely bursting with life. And intrigue. People seem to know her. Have been expecting her. Very eerie.

When she goes to the website of a quaint little shop she visits, she receives a message that she is the Zodiac Girl for the month. Joe claims to be her guardian for that time. He is Jupiter. She's Sagittarius. It makes sense to him, but seems very suspicious to Danu. Joe tells her she will have encounters with other celestial beings, and he is correct.

Does this mean that Joe will be able to solve all of her problems? Danu could only hope for that. It is Danu who must learn to figure out what she wants and how to take steps towards making those things happen. The planets can guide you, but you have to think for yourself. Have to decide how you want your life to be.

Join Danu on a mystical trip and mingle with the planets and stars in this out-there, fun book.
