I knew what to do. Without discussion, I knew what he wanted. I drilled a hole, and we hung a pendant. The actual legal drama to save the towers feels familiar. But Konigsburg's depiction of outsiders and outsider art is, like the towers themselves, a thing of strange beauty. By Flavia Bujor.
Flavia Bujor was 13 when she wrote ''The Prophecy of the Stones,'' a best seller in Europe, and at 15, she is being called a ''media sensation. A magic stone arrives on the 14th birthday of the three main characters, aptly named Jade, Opal and Amber. The girls are abruptly taken from their families and sent on a mysterious mission through an enchanted world where they must not only save the good people of a land called Fairytale from the evil Army of Darkness, but also save themselves from a prophecy that dooms them to betrayal and even death. Horses communicate telepathically with their riders, and terrifying obstacles feed their fear, but it is transparently a journey of self-discovery; in a parallel plot, a girl named Joa lies dying in a Paris hospital, and it's not hard to guess the connection.
