Newt’s Emerald

Newt's EmeraldWritten by Garth Nix

Lady Truthful (Newt) is allowed to preview her 21st birthday present during her 18th birthday party. The present is a powerful enchanted emerald, more powerful than anyone can imagine. But, a lightning storm hits, the windows shatter, the lights go out, and the emerald disappears. When the emerald disappears Newt’s father becomes ill. Truthful decides to recover the emerald while taking on a male disguise. Adventure, love, betrayal, and danger await.

Garth Nix’s superb writing brings an amazing story to life. Readers won’t be able to put this down. Readers who like either Nix or Tangled Webs will love this book. A must have for all junior high and high school libraries.
