Book Synopsis: What a mystery! Goldie Alexander has certainly caught me intrigued in this novel with all the beautiful and descriptive language used. The adventure and justice drive in best friends, Melody and Sam leads them on all sorts of mystical adventures in order to recover the café’s Good-Luck-Conch. Emotions of the characters were well conveyed through mere actions, adding another dimension to the story. The style of writing succeeded in planting a detailed picture in the mind. Wonderful story line and a range of fantastical settings such as ice kingdoms, seal coves and mazes.

Highly recommended for the younger side of teen years and primary school students.
