From the Back Cover
When the beautiful and mysterious Amanda Stone gives Gus Pike a bag of priceless jewels to hide, his instincts—and his heart—tell him he’s helping a friend. But Amanda Stone is not a friend, she’s a jewelry thief who is looking to double-cross her partner, Robert Rutherford—and use the lovesick Gus to help her. When Rutherford threatens to kill Amanda unless he receives the jewels, the sleuthing Sara Stanley and her King cousins, Felicity and Felix, set out to save Gus and expose the thieves.
Adapted from the award-winning, internationally acclaimed television series, the magical adventures of “The Story Girl” continue—in the spirit and tradition of Lucy Maud Montgomery—for a new generation of young readers.
