Lorna Wilson moves to Arizona with her mom and baby brother leaving her dad behind. She begins seeking a way to fit in when a girl knocks on her front door.
Splashing in the pool at Ally’s house, Lorna learns about the bike challenge created by a scar-faced neighborhood legend, Samuel Black. She hears herself boasting that she can take on Sam Black in his own race and win. Lorna’s words quickly come back to bite her.
Although none of the kids will root for the new girl, an ancient cairn opens to the Land of Twilight giving Lorna an opportunity to win anything her heart desires.
This is great kid literature. Must have! Full series is a trilogy.
