TITLE: Genie Out
GENRE: YA Paranormal Suspense/Romance
My friends call me Janna the granola girl, but what would make my day? Murder my sister.
At a normal summer camp in Cape Cod, Massachussetts, a closing day on a gorgeous August afternoon is usually pretty awesome with the ocean lapping gently against the shore and visitors strolling around.
At POP summer camp – Peewee Organization of Psychics – a.k.a Summer Juvie for psychics, it meant I was being thrown down the gauntlet and tried in two hours. And who had organized that? My twin sister Moira when I had explicitly told her not to.
“Of course you’re ready,” she said. “All the counselors agree with me.”
“How would you know that?” I told Moira “They can’t see you. You’re not even real! Reen told me.”
Moira pushed a strand of white chalked hair around her dark bun and stared at my best friend. Reen was tossing the ocean scum with her mind, dragging ballooning seaweeds ashore and painting them with a display of spray paint a few feet away. Unaware.
“How’s that for real?” her voice clipped.
Moira threw me off, face first in an incoming wave. My stomach clenched. Salt entered my eyes and my mouth. I tumbled around a few times before she grabbed my arm and pulled me up to my feet, my skin raw and my head throbbing.
“Don’t forget, 4pm,” she said before whipping her heels around.
I sloshed through the water, gritting my teeth.
“Congrats, Sis, the Psychometer is going off the richter!”
