The Watcher of the Night Sky: Part One (The Aronia Series Book 1)
Rachel Pudsey, author
Fifteen-year-old Abigail Crumble never really enjoyed talking about love and marriage and other such nonsense – no matter how often her boy obsessed best friend pestered her to do so. Or so she so adamantly proclaimed. Yet, on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, after being tormented and belittled by some ill-mannered boys, Abigail makes the biggest, most contradictory mistake of her life. She wishes upon the stars for love, or even the smallest amount of attention, without knowing the full impact of such a feat. Abigail soon finds her simple life in disarray as princes, men and mysterious creatures come to her door, each adamantly in love with her and refusing to leave her side. Not only does she discover that she is cursed but also revealed is one of the biggest secrets that her parents had long decided to conceal from her. Mixing fantasy, humour, and romance, The Watcher of the Night Sky tells of one girl’s journey to rid herself of a curse that was definitely more than she wished for.
