Title: DARKENWEAR, INC.: FEATHERS VS. SCALES
Genre: Upper MG fantasy/adventure
Thirteen-year-old Persephone Stone stumbles across a terrifying secret, the hottest fashion label on earth, DarkenWear Inc., is imprisoning magical creatures from another realm in its clothing and accessories line. Unicorns live in jacket linings, dragons warm the fingers of gloves, and goblins lurk in the shadowy folds of skirts. As Persephone starts investigating, she discovers that the nasty scar on her left arm is actually a dragon’s bite and she’s slowly transforming into a fire-breathing monster that’s sure to be on DarkenWear’s list for next season’s collection. Persephone must stop production before she, and every enchanted creature, is transformed into a designer handbag or a fabulous pair of shoes.
The vortex howled around the dilapidated Calvin Coolidge Middle School, throwing crows against the glass and filling the air with feathers.
