That’s the only word to describe what Granny Maya has told Akeena the day after her twelfth birthday. According to a family legend — to be told only to girls in their thirteenth year of life — she, Akeena Lawton herself, might become the only guardian of an underground city of gold.
Her cousin, Melody, whom Akeena considers unfriendly and a snob, was told the legend on her own birthday two months earlier. They are the only female descendents of a long-extinct tribe of people called the Aneeka.
If the legend is true Akeena has only one year to discover the hidden, underground city. Can the legend possibly be true? Even if it is, how can Akeena become the guardian with her cousin, Melody, in the running?
The race is on! Will the snobbish Melody win? Not if Akeena has anything to say about it.
