Six teenagers from Northern California are assigned a seemingly innocent group project for their sophomore English class. Little do they know, this project will take them on a journey out of this world—literally. Cantelia appears much like Earth until the kids realize magic is as plentiful as the wildlife surrounding them. What’s at stake is much more than they can fathom, especially since they are part of an ancient prophecy. A dark and evil ruler is enforcing a curse on the tribes people of Sikuku Island—the same place where the kids have been transported. Now, they must help the islanders break the curse if they ever want to see their own planet again. Join Alex and her companions as they learn there is so much more beyond their comfortable lives in Pollock Pines and its legendary lake, Spirit Lake.
