I didn’t mean for things to happen this way. But they did. Now while everyone else moves forward, my entire life is on hold! Even worse, the magical gift that holds the key to my future is in jeopardy. I want to make everything right. But what if I can’t?

So begins the adventure of twelve-year-old Zenda from Azureblue, a magical green planet where the quest for spiritual enlightenment is as natural to living as breathing. Smart, gifted, and headstrong, yet also a sensitive dreamer, Zenda is the quintessential girl on the verge of adolescence: always changing, always questioning, and constantly seeking to make sense of her world and her place in it. Featuring a thoroughly modern yet timeless character, Zenda is the ultimate series for today’s sophisticated ’tween girl.

The biggest day of Zenda’s life is finally here: In a few short hours she will be presented with her very own gazing ball. It is the gazing ball that will reveal her thirteen special "musings," the lessons unique to Zenda that will guide her on her journey through life. Then, Zenda breaks her gazing ball and her thirteen musings vanish and scatter out into the atmosphere. It’s up to Zenda to find them; if not, she risks never fulfilling her potential—or her secret dreams.
