Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier; reviewed by Hannie R.
"Gwen never wanted to be the Ruby, she never wanted to be able to time-travel, and she never wanted to be part of the circle of 12. The worst part is that no one will tell her anything, she has to figure out the mystery of her powers and the circle with only the help of an annoying ghost, her grandpa from the past (long story), and of course her mystery loving best friend. All while dealing with a sexist count who may be able to control minds, a very confusing relationship, a snotty cousin, trips to the past to collect blood from other time travelers, and of course homework. At least the dresses she gets to wear during trips to the past are beautiful. Suspense, pretty dresses, humor, romance, and adventure. This book has everything you could want, it may even be better than Ruby Red (the first book in the trilogy). Kerstin's book is impossible to put down you'll find yourself reading until 3 in the morning cause you just need to see what happens next. I highly recommend it." - Hannie R.
